A second Alderson-Broaddus University student has been charged and expelled in connection with a group fight at West Virginia Wesleyan College.
 
Twenty-year-old Mychael Vantrell Knox of Virginia Beach, Va., is charged with misdemeanor obstruction.
 
State police say in a criminal complaint that Knox refused to give Buckhannon Police Chief and Lt. Douglas Loudin his cell phone when the officers attempted to serve a search warrant for it last week.
 

Gregory has said about 20 students were involved in the fight last weekend near the Wesleyan campus.
 
Alderson Broaddus spokeswoman Ashley Mittelmeier says Knox has been expelled.
 
The university expelled 19-year-old Steven Smith of Virginia Beach last week after he was charged with malicious wounding.
 
Knox and Smith are both being held at the Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
