Tallahassee, FL-The attorney for an FSU track star arrested in a shooting incident says his client is innocent.

Attorney Josh Zelman says police never found a gun nor did they test his client Stephen Newbold for gun residue to see if he fired one.

Tallahassee Police arrested Newbold Thursday. He's charged with resisting arrest without violence and discharging a firearm in public.

Zelman says he and his client will fight the charges.

Newbold returns to court on April 30.
