Man was escorted from Paulson for throwing bottle
Victim cheerleader declines to press charges
A man who threw a bottle at a Savannah State University cheerleader during Saturday’s game against Georgia Southern University was escorted from Paulson Stadium, but not arrested. Around 6:30 p.m. Saturday, a 22-year-old resident student of GSU reportedly threw a plastic bottle, striking Savannah State cheerleader Ma’Kyah Sims in the face, according to GSU Police incident reports. Sims did not wish to press charges, nor did she want anything else done, according to the reports, but she later posted a comment on Facebook that became widely read, with a variety of comments addressing the act and alleged racial slurs she said were uttered.
