TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The student accused of posting racially charged messages on social media is out on bond after being arrested Friday, Oct. 7.
20-year-old Ryan J. Parish, reportedly of Dothan, is charged with harassing communications. The charge stems from a social media exchange reportedly between another student and Parish on Facebook.
CBS42 spoke to the other student, Jamal Commander right after the incident happened. The University announced Parish was suspended, but did not elaborate on the length of the suspension.
According to records, Parish admitted to an investigator that he posted the messages to Commander, which read, “I’ll kill you n****** don’t speak to me wrong” followed by “I’ll kick your black a**.”
The arrest records were made public Oct. 11.
