MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia University police charged two teenagers in connection with a car-flipping incident that followed the Mountaineers upset win over Oklahoma State last month.
Police said Kevin James Wheeler, 18, is a WVU student from White Hall, Md., and 18-year-old William Schwab, of Sparks Glencoe, Md., is a student at the University of South Carolina. They’ve both been charged with destruction of property.
A YouTube video showed the car being flipped onto its roof in the hours following the Sept. 28 upset victory. There appear to have been about six men involved. Police said the vehicle sustained more than $6,000 in damages.
Detectives said they received more than 40 tips during the investigation.
WVU police said Thursday the Monongalia County prosecutor plans to pursue extradition against Schwab as “a reflection of the seriousness associated with this type of criminal behavior.”
