AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Officials at a Georgia university say the college president plans to reimburse the school for costs of a state-owned bus that was used to carry guests of a private wedding at his home.
Georgia Regents University spokeswoman Christen Carter acknowledged the use of university resources, including the bus and GRU police officers for security at the wedding for Azziz's niece, Breeanna Beckhamn, and groom Brian Straessle.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that their wedding was held Saturday evening on the grounds of the Azziz residence, which is property of the University Board of Regents.
She said the shuttle bus and the driver were on duty for about 11 hours Saturday at a rate of $36 per hour. Carter said the entire cost for university resources was $416.
