YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Officials say no charges are expected after a black doll was found hanging from a shower rod inside an Eastern Michigan University dorm.
The Ypsilanti school says in a statement its police department submitted a report on the investigation to the Washtenaw County prosecutor’s office and included a request for an ethnic intimidation charge, but prosecutors this week declined the request.READ MORE: Kellogg's Being Sued Over Strawberry Pop-Tarts

The prosecutor’s office says it determined the alleged actions didn’t meet the legal requirements for an ethnic intimidation charge.
The university has said a resident adviser in Best Hall found the doll Feb. 11 in a bathroom shared by suitemates and a guest of one of the suitemates told investigators it was placed there as a “prank.” The school says university police “took the case very seriously” and dedicated “extensive resources” to the investigation.MORE NEWS: City of Hamtramck To Handout Water Filters On Oct.26
