Mids punished for hitting 2 women with pillows

Four male midshipmen have been given demerits for pummeling two female classmates with pillows in a Dec. 3 incident in the Naval Academy's dormitory.

The women, both sophomore midshipmen, were bruised, and one received a black eye when the pillow fight got out of hand. Academy spokesman, Cmdr. Mike John, did not know whether the bruises and black eye were the result of punches or sharply snapped pillow cases.

Commander John said the male midshipmen -- a senior and three sophomores -- would receive demerits, lose their leave privileges and be placed on probation.

The women told investigators that they did not believe they were the victims of discrimination or harassment, Commander John said.
