Georgia college bus driver accused of leaving gun on campus

December 15, 2017

ATLANTA (AP) — Officials say a student bus driver for the University of Georgia is accused of taking a loaded gun into a residence hall.

According to a campus police report, 30-year-old Brett Michael Davis told police he was driving his route on Dec. 6 when he parked at Russell Hall so that he could walk to Brumby Hall to use the bathroom.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that he left without his weapon to continue his bus route. Authorities say a campus employee called police and Davis returned shortly after to retrieve his gun.

Although he had a concealed carry permit, police say Davis was charged with having a weapon on school property, and reckless conduct.

The newspaper did not report on if he had a lawyer.
