A 19-year-old Howard College student was arrested Wednesday afternoon after allegedly carrying a firearm onto the campus, prompting officials to temporarily increase security at the school.

Mobey Cordell Lewis, of 506 Young, was arrested following an altercation at the college on charges of unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place and possession of marijuana (two ounces or less) in a drug-free zone.

Cindy Smith, director of information at the college, said the altercation began shortly before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday outside the Horace Garrett Building and allegedly involved Lewis, two other students and a fourth individual.

During the altercation, a firearm was allegedly displayed. Smith said the weapon was never discharged and no injuries were reported.
