Bowling Green coach to meet teen graffiti suspects
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- A judge has ordered two teens accused of scribbling racist graffiti on a sidewalk in front of Bowling Green men's basketball coach Louis Orr's house to meet with him.
Prosecutors said Wednesday they would set up a meeting within a few weeks.
The boys were in juvenile court Tuesday on charges of ethnic intimidation and criminal mischief. Authorities say they wrote "white power" and drew a swastika with chalk in front of the black coach's house in October.
Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson says Orr is very interested in talking with the teens.
Orr has been Bowling Green's coach since 2007. His son Chauncey is a starter on this year's team.
The teens are again due in court Feb. 14.
