PHILIPPI , W.Va. – An Alderson Broaddus University student is under arrest in connection with a fight that occurred this past weekend near a fraternity house at West Virginia Wesleyan College.
Steven Smith, 19, of Virginia Beach, Va. was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with malicious wounding.
Smith was a football player at A-B. He was suspended last semester.
Authorities continue to investigate the incident which reportedly involved more than 20 students at the Kappa Alpha house just off the Weslyan campus. Weslyan officials say a group of A-B students wanted to attend a party at the house, but were told it was over. The group returned with five car loads of people and attacked the member of the fraternity who denied them access.
Several were injured including one victim who was stabbed in the arm.
Smith is in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail in lieu of $75,000 bond.
