BPS Investigator Ryan Deen was notified by School Resource Officer Travis Martin that a parent had called the school to complain that Reynolds was allegedly responsible for selling marijuana to a juvenile student.

According to the incident report, the marijuana was found concealed inside the backpack in a plastic sandwich bag that contained six smaller plastic bags.

The Performance Learning Center, or PLC is described by school officials as a non-traditional learning environment. Students who may have otherwise not succeeded at Bainbridge High School can choose to attend PLC, in which they complete work at their own pace using computer-based learning software, while still under the supervision of teachers.
