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. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
