>> in the orange room this morning. what's shaking over there.

>> good morning, guys. they say it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt or pretty mad, that's what happened at the university of oregon this weekend. it was supposed to be fun. a free for all fight until -- take a look at the video -- this retired professors car gets assailed. this was posted by the university student newspaper. 2 million hits over the weekend. this was all supposed to be fun until this guy got out of the car. we just got word, though, that he's not planning to press charges but you see he is not happy. reportedly some of the people involved were football players and that prompted a tweet from one of the players on the team. he said embarrassed by the video i just watched. that's not all of us, sending the sincerest apologies. but the universities dean of students put out a statement saying this is under investigation. so it's all fun and games until that happens to your car.

>> until there's an independent investigation.

>> i'm on my way to investigate.
