College Soccer Star Arrested in BB Gun Attack at BYU

Utah police have cracked the case of the mysterious Brigham Young University BB gun shooter.

James “Jamie” Andrew Dunning was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with three counts of aggravated assault, according to Provo police. The 18-year-old is a “top recruit” for the Utah Valley University soccer program who’s played for 17 national teams, police say.

Dunning is accused of firing a BB gun at a group of BYU students from a Nissan Rogue on Sunday, according to his arrest affidavit. Of the three students who were hit, one caught a BB “three inches above his ear … which required medical treatment to remove,” the affidavit reads.

Could this single bad decision screw up the rest of Dunning’s life? What’s the worst choice you made in college?
