Eighteen-year-old University at Hartford student Brianna Brochu (bro-SHOE) is facing several charges for supposedly contaminating several of her roommate, Chennel Rowe’s belongings. It was reported Brochu boasted on Instagram about the harmful substances she placed in Rowe’s lotion, on her toothbrush, and on her backpack. The actions are being called racially motivated against Rowe who is black. Brochu has since been expelled from the school and one of the charges Brochu is facing is intimidation based on bigotry or bias which is a felony.
