A student from the University of Tennessee at Martin is in jail for allegedly threatening another student with a gun.
Captain Phillip Fuqua tells us a student was sleeping at a fraternity house waiting for a friend.

The student claims Melaro threatened him with a rifle.
Officers arrested Melaro and found a semi-automatic rife in his possession.
He is facing aggravated assault charges.
