Charges reduced for pair accused of hate crime
SARATOGA SPRINGS -- Two men are facing felony assault charges following a brutal beating over the weekend.
Police arrested Luis Garcia, 23, and Shayne Richardson, 21, early Sunday morning. They say the men beat up another man on Pavilion Row causing serious injuries.
The pair had originally been charged with a hate crime due to a racial slur that investigators say had been used during the fight. Those charges were taken off the table Monday afternoon.
