July 09, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

COLLEGE PARK - Two University of Maryland students have been charged with riot offenses, accused of starting a fire after the school basketball team beat Duke in March.

David Mulock, 19, of Murrysville, Pa., and James Creegan, 19, of Damascus were charged with seven offenses, including rioting, disorderly conduct and malicious burning, according to court documents that were filed last week in Prince George's County.

They were among thousands of fans who crowded onto U.S. 1 after the game. Police said Mulock and Creegan helped start a fire in the street that was put out by firefighters.

In addition to jail time and fines, the two students could be expelled from school if they are convicted of riot charges. The students could reapply after a year if they are expelled, according to school rules.
