Oklahoma football signee Josh Jarboe was charged Friday in DeKalb County, Ga., on two felony gun counts, according to court records.

Jarboe, 18, is charged with theft by receiving a gun and carrying a weapon within a school safety zone stemming from an arrest last Thursday.

Jarboe was booked into the DeKalb County Jail along with James Davis, 17, who was arrested on similar complaints.

According to the police report released Monday, Jarboe and Davis drove into the Cedar Grove High School parking lot in a yellow Geo Storm about 3:30 p.m.

That's when police say Jarboe walked to the back of the car and pulled back the spare tire cover, reaching for a silver and black handgun and tucking it into the waistband of his pants.

According to the report, Cedar Grove assistant principal Karl Moton saw Jarboe grab the gun and told school police to search Jarboe, Davis and the car.

When Jarboe saw police officer John F. Brooks approaching, he tried to hide the gun underneath the driver's seat of the car, where the gun was eventually found, police said.

The gun, a 380 caliber pistol, was loaded with four bullets. And the gun was stolen from an owner in nearby Clayton County, according to police. Incident Report
