GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina university is conducting an internal review after one of its white police officers handcuffed a black man who had just been brutally beaten by four white people.

East Carolina University said in a statement it was appalled by the incident, which began at an off campus club March 17 and ended near a dining hall at the school's Greenville campus.

University officials said in a news conference it was reviewing the actions of the officer, who they did not name.

Greenville police say 26-year-old Patrick Myrick was beaten after he hit a woman in the face and she fell to the ground. Police say Myrick suffered serious injuries and had to go to the hospital.
