Georiga equipment manager Kevin Purvis was fired after being arrested on felony eavesdropping and drug charges last Friday.

Purvis had reportedly placed a hidden camera in a shower area of Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall on Georgia's campus. Police later searched his residence and found a small amount of marijuana and “unprescribed Fentanyl patches.” Per ESPN:

James Kevin Purvis, 37, was being held Saturday morning in the Athens-Clarke County Jail on $16,000 bond. He faces three felony counts of eavesdropping or surveillance, felony possession of schedule II controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Georgia spokesman Claude Felton said the athletics department notified UGA police of the incident, and Purvis was fired early in the investigation.

"As soon as it learned of the incident, the Athletic Association notified the University of Georgia Police Department, who began their investigation," the statement read. "The University took immediate action, and the employee was terminated early in the investigation. Based on the findings of the police investigation, no student-athletes were victims in this incident."
