CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A Coastal Carolina University student is accused of stealing multiple items from an on-campus dorm, reaching for a hand gun while fighting with officers, and being in possession of over 150 Xanax pills, according to the CCU Police incident report.

On Saturday, police responded to Lovequawn Scott’s vehicle at the Hackler Golf Course because it looked suspicious. When questioned why the vehicle was parked at the location, he said that he didn’t mean to park the vehicle there, the report states.

The officer said that Scott became extremely evasive, and they asked to search Scott's car. At that point, Scott unlocked the doors, and appeared to be trying to flee. The officer then grabbed Scott and took him to the ground with assistance from another officer.

The report states that while fighting with the officers, Scott tried to reach for his fully-loaded Ruger 38 Special revolver. The live rounds were removed, and entered into the National Crime Information Center as stolen. A BB&T checkbook was also found in his pocket with a name other than Scott's listed on it.

According to the incident report, the vehicle search revealed a large amount of stolen property from automobiles and residences in the Quail Creek Village. There was also approximately 163 Xanax pills, three plastic bags containing ecstasy, and marijuana hidden inside a pair of men's underwear.

A search warrant of the suspect’s residence was conducted, and two more Xanax bars were found.

Online records show that Scott is in custody at the J Reuben Long Detention Center. He is charged with resisting arrest with a deadly weapon, MDP narcotic drugs, receiving stolen goods, sale or delivery of pistol to, and possession by certain persons.

Scott was restricted from campus once the university was notified of his arrest, according to spokeswoman Martha Hunn. "This measure is taken during the University administrative process to protect all parties and the integrity of the investigation," she stated.
