LEO released from hospital after violent clash with Georgia Tech protesters

The officer was one of two officers who suffered minor injuries in Monday night's demonstration

ATLANTA — A Georgia Tech spokesman says a campus police officer taken to a hospital after a violent clash with demonstrators has been released.

University spokesman Lance Wallace says the officer taken to Grady Memorial Hospital was one of two officers who suffered minor injuries in Monday night's demonstration on the Atlanta campus.

Wallace said three people — Vincent Castillenti, Jacob Wilson, and Cassandra Monden — were arrested. All are charged with inciting a riot and battery of an officer. The university hasn't said whether they're students, and didn't provide their ages or hometowns.

The violence followed a vigil for 21-year-old Georgia Tech student Scout Schultz, who was fatally shot by campus police Saturday.

Georgia Tech hasn't identified the officer who fired the shot and has refused to release any information about the officers who confronted Schultz.
