A Georgia Southern student was arrested for simple assault after a heated exchange on a campus bus.

Tasia Thompson was arrested on Feb. 12 following an altercation with fellow student, Najae Moore.

The issues began on Feb. 9 when Thompson got into a Twitter argument with Moore. The argument ended with Moore deleting her responses in the argument then blocking Thompson.

On Feb. 11, Moore got onto the Gold Route from the stop at Forest Drive Building. Thompson also got onto the bus and began to antagonize her.

“Ask about me hoe, I will beat the f**k out of you,” Thompson said to Moore, according to the police reports.

Moore attempted to ignore Thompson by putting in her headphones.

After this incident, Moore contacted campus police about the incident and stated that she felt threatened and if need be she would have defended herself.

The warrant for Thompson’s arrest was filed after a video was provided by a third party corroborating Moore’s account. Thompson was arrested the day after the incident after she failed to respond to campus police.
