3 surrender to police after beating, racial slurs alleged
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Three white men accused of shouting racial slurs and beating a black man on a New Orleans street have surrendered to police.
New Orleans news outlets report Matthew Adam Vining, Stone Michael Linden and Bobby Lee McCollister, all 23, were arrested Wednesday and Thursday and released on bail.
Investigators believe the 64-year-old victim was driving near the French Quarter early Nov. 4 when the men blocked his vehicle.
The man told police that when he honked his horn, the men responded with racial slurs.
Police said witnesses and surveillance video indicate the driver was beaten after getting out of his car holding a stick.
Hearings for the men are pending. Defense attorneys told The New Orleans Advocate the public should not jump to conclusions about the suspects.
