BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana receiver Isaac Griffith kept his composure as long as possible Saturday.

It was never going to last.

He listened stoically as safety Ty Smith explained how he ignored the dire warnings from his aquatics management class and his own mother, a former lifeguard, to run back into the water and help pull his best friend out of a life-threatening rip current. He heard receiver Nick Stoner explain how he ran the fastest 500-meter sprint of his life to seek medical help. He heard his parents describe his incredibly speedy recovery as nothing short of miraculous.

After all that, of course the tears started flowing.

"These (three) guys are my brothers, I love them to death," the 19-year-old freshman said, covering his eyes. "I always say that if you can take three warriors into battle, I'll take those three every time."

DETROIT (AP) — Two Detroit teenagers were arrested Saturday in an attack on a suburban man who was brutally beaten by a mob after accidentally striking a boy with his pickup truck.

Investigators believe the 17-year-old and 16-year-old males had a direct role in the beating of Steve Utash, said Sgt. Mike Woody, a Detroit police spokesman.

Utash remained in critical condition Saturday, three days after the attack on the city's east side.

Woody said no charges would be immediately filed against the teens while investigators continue their work. Police believe at least six people may have been involved.

Century-old headstones vandalized at Ohio cemetery

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Vandals damaged close to 100 headstones at an eastern Ohio cemetery this past week.

Some of the markers were almost 150 years old, dating back to the Civil War era.

City officials in Zanesville think that more than one person was responsible for the damage at the Woodlawn Cemetery because of how many headstones were either knocked over or broken.

Cemetery Superintendent Jeff Johnson says some of the broken makers might not be fixable. He says it looks like a tornado went through the cemetery.

The cemetery opened in 1851. Those buried include former Civil War officers and three former congressmen.

LORAIN, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Attorney General's Office has given an $85,000 grant to a new nonprofit home for homeless veterans trying to get back on their feet.

Valor Home is set to open May 1 in Lorain in northeastern Ohio.

It will have 30 beds for transitional housing for homeless veterans.

The $85,000 grant, announced this week, is planned to be used to help make improvements to the home. That will include remodeling the basement, fixing the roof and repairing damages from a burst pipe.

In addition to transitional housing, Valor Home will also help veterans get drug and alcohol counseling, vocational training and other services.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says veterans have given so much and deserve a helping hand after their service.
