Once the fights broke up, the witness alleges Evans pulled out a gun and fired it into the air, which led to others also shooting into the air.A warrant was issued for Evans’ arrest and he was taken into custody on Tuesday, July 7.Evans played two seasons for Mississippi State before transferring to West Georgia in 2014. The former Dandy Dozen selection never played a game for the Wolves.Evans, a Morton native, arrived at Mississippi State in 2012 as one of the best high school players in the state. He possessed unique size and strength at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds.He totaled 328 tackles and 31.5 sacks in four years at Morton High School.As a high school junior he won the state powerlifting championship with a 635-pound deadlift.The success didn’t follow Evans to MSU. He played in a total of 15 games in 2012 and 2013 and finished with 10 career tackles.The relationship between Evans and Mississippi State began to spoil in 2013 when MSU coach Dan Mullen suspended Evans indefinitely for violating team rules. During the suspension, Evans was arrested for driving without a license. He didn’t play in MSU’s final seven games.In early 2014, the school announced his transfer to West Georgia. Evans wound up back in Starkville, though. He was arrested for a second time in April for a warrant issued regarding a traffic ticket.**Editor’s note: Correction — The original story incorrectly stated the alleged incident took place on Saturday, July 4.**Contact Michael Bonner at Follow @MikeBBonner on Twitter.last_img read more
