Today marks the start of a week of fall break for students and faculty at the University of North Georgia. Students are in class today at UGA: the University of Georgia’s Thanksgiving break begins Wednesday.

A University of Georgia Police investigation continues after last week’s brawl at Brumby Hall (pictured), a fight that sent two UGA students to an Athens hospital. Police say at least one of the victims appears to have been pistol-whipped. Warrants were issued for four people involved in the campus fight.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating a deadly weekend crash in Elbert County: one person was killed in single-vehicle wreck on Lake Forest Circle in Elberton. 53 year-old Tracey Routh died after being taken to Elbert Memorial Hospital. The driver of the car, a 33 year-old woman from Elbert County, was taken to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center for treatment of what were described as non life-threatening injuries. The State Patrol says Shanteeka Browner could face charges in the aftermath of the accident.
