A Columbia University football player is facing a hate crime charge after police say he threatened another student.
Investigators say Chad Washington, 19, approached a 19-year-old Asian student on the school's campus Sunday, threatened him and made anti-Asian remarks.
Washington was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime.
It's not clear if Washington and the Asian student knew each other prior to the incident.
In a statement, Columbia says it cannot comment on the ongoing investigation.
