AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Officials at Georgia Regents University say school President Ricardo Azziz 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.
School 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.
Their wedding was held Saturday evening on the grounds of the Azziz residence, which is property of the University Board of Regents, The Augusta Chronicle reported (http://bit.ly/17UADDL).
A 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, Carter said.
