News10NBC has a follow-up on the two College at Brockport students who were arrested after a picture of a dog doing a keg stand appeared on social media. It shows a dog upside down over a beer keg.

Police say Shane Oliver is the student holding the dog. He's been charged with torturing an animal.  The other student arrested is Robert Yates. Both were in court Wednesday.

Investigators say Yates posted the picture on his Twitter page where it says "keg stands"  with the hashtag Brockport. It's not clear if the dog was forced to drink beer.
