MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — In a story Jan. 29 about a hazing arrest, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Morgantown Police Department, reported erroneously that Michael William Sousa, 21, of Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., was charged with hazing and battery. The police department said Sousa was charged only with hazing, and that he was erroneously listed as being charged with battery during processing.
