A Coastal Carolina University student has been restricted from campus after he was arrested on multiple drug charges and reportedly tried to pull a gun on an officer.

Lovequawn Matthew Shaire Scott, 20, of Conway, was charged with possession of schedule IV drugs; four charges of receiving stolen goods $2,000 or less; resisting arrest with deadly weapon; five other drug offenses; breaking into a motor vehicle and sale or delivery of pistol to, and possession by, certain persons unlawful, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

On Saturday, Nov. 19, police were called to Hackler Golf Course for a suspicious vehicle. Police found a green Honda Accord parked behind a large tree. The police report states the car appeared to be parked in such a way as to conceal the car from sight.

An employee of the golf course arrived on a golf cart with a man, who was identified in the report as Scott. He told police that he didn't mean to park his car in that spot.

When asked why the car was parked there, the report states Scott became "extremely evasive." Scott gave police consent to search the vehicle, but when he unlocked the door, he reportedly tried to get in and drive away.

One of the officers was able to grab Scott around his waist and get him on the ground. While Scott was fighting officers, the report states he reached into his front pocket.

One of the officers stopped him and the officer pulled out a loaded gun. Police say they also found another person's checkbook in his other pocket.

When police searched the vehicle, they found a "vast amount of property confirmed to be stolen from multiple residences and cars throughout the Quail Creek Village area."

They also found a pair of men's underwear that had approximately 163 Xanax pills; three bags of a white powdery substance that were tested as MDMA; and a clear bag of marijuana.

Police later confirmed that Scott was a suspect in eight breaking and entering auto cases.

When police searched his home, they found more drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Martha Hunn, spokesperson for the university, said "Scott was restricted from campus upon notice of arrest. This measure is taken during the University administrative process to protect all parties and the integrity of the investigation."

He was arrested on Nov. 19. His bond was set at $42,375. He is still in custody as of 11 a.m. on Nov. 22.
