WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Two University of South Florida students were arrested in South Carolina after they were pulled over for speeding and some materials believed to be explosives were found in the trunk of their car.
The pair were charged with possessing an explosive device, but the students say they were carrying fireworks.
On Wednesday, Andrew "Andy" Savage was hired to be the new attorney for one of the students, Youssef Megahed.
Savage was a guest this morning on the WMNF program, True Talk, with hosts Samar Jarrar and Ahmed Bedier.
Savage said that the high bail might be due to a policy of ethnic profiling of the two students of middle-eastern descent. Savage said that sufficient information must have been gathered by now in order to determine whether the students were doing anything suspicious.
