"I'm ready to testify in front of a judge on behalf of ANYONE mistreated by Charleston Police Department last night," basketball player Chris Morrow wrote on Twitter.
Andrea Morrow wrote that she watched a "100lb girl tackled by a 240lb police officer."
Davis "was lunging out toward [police] with her arms outstretched while the officers had their backs to her," according to a criminal complaint.
"She would have interjected herself physically in the struggle had I not grabbed her prior to her making contact with the officers," J.M. Spurlock wrote.
Travis Hinkle, an admissions counselor at West Liberty, wrote on his Twitter page Sunday that police should have never been called to the hotel.
"Nobody was out of line and the Charleston PD was throwing people around for no reason," Hinkle wrote.
Cooper said the incident was not captured on hotel surveillance video.
The Hilltoppers' win Saturday marked the team's third straight title at the West Virginia Conference men's basketball tournament at the Charleston Civic Center.
West Liberty is ranked No. 1 nationally in NCAA Division II.
The school's president issued a statement Sunday about the incident, which touted the accomplishments of James Watson.
"West Liberty University, and I personally, fully support Jim," said President Robin C. Capehart in the written statement. "Based on the account of more than two dozen eyewitnesses to whom I've spoken, we look forward to the judicial process with regard to this matter."
Capehart wasn't available Monday to comment further. James Watson did not return a phone call.
In light of the incident, Mayor Jones said he hopes the tournament will return to Charleston, but added, "We also hope that all people will conduct themselves appropriately."
"From what I have learned about the situation, I believe our officers did respond appropriately to this call for help."Reach Kate White at kate.wh...@wvgazette.com or 304-348-1723.
