'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A college student is facing aggravated assault and related charges after a dance at California University of Pennsylvania.

Alexander Ross, 18, of Pittsburgh was escorted out of a dance Saturday at the student union by friends when he became combative with police at the scene, Cal U Police Chief Bob Downey told Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV.

Ross charged at officers and wouldn't comply with their commands, so they Tased him, Downey said.

He is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment, disorderly conduct, underage drinking and public drunkenness, according to court documents.

After an arraignment Sunday morning by Burgettstown District Judge Gary Havelka, Ross was unable to post $5,000 bond and remains in Washington County Prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled before Brownsville District Judge Joshua Kanalis at 10 a.m. Dec. 11.
