STATESBORO — A Georgia Southern student was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon in a school safety zone in the E-lot of Eagle Village Tuesday night, according to a police report made by the Georgia Southern University police. 

Wyatt Davis of Monroe, Georgia was arrested and charged with the felony after he confronted a woman with a handgun just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night. The woman later activated a panic alarm from a dorm in EV.

According to the police report, Davis was driving around campus and noticed his ex-girlfriend’s car in E-lot and became worried for her. 

“(The woman) asked him what he was doing there, to which he responded that he was worried about her. That he had been waiting outside for approximately two hours for her and that he wanted to hug her,” the report reads, recounting the woman’s statement. “(The woman) agreed to hug him, however, she then observed that he had a handgun in his hand.”

After interviewing both Davis and the witnesses, Davis was transported to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office with his bond set at $10,000.

Davis was released Wednesday.
