As the Inquisitr previously reported, two police officers recently discovered Fred Barley, a homeless teen sleeping on his school's campus so that he could continue his classes.
After he was found last weekend, Barley's story began to unfold. The teen rode his younger brother's bike more than six hours from home in Conyers, Georgia to Gordon State College in Barnesville so that he could register for his second semester. The 19-year-old, a biology major, brought two duffel bags and two gallons of water on his journey.
He slept on campus in a tent at nights, planning to stay there until he could move into the dorms later this summer, and looked for jobs during the days.
Officer Richard Carreker and the second officer, after hearing the homeless teen's story, paid for Barley to stay in a motel room instead of giving him a ticket for trespassing on the college campus.
