    Tavis is a nice guy from a great family. I hope he can learn some hard lessons and turn it around.

      he’s not that nice, he didn’t return the credit cards to the proper owner but perhaps when he realizes that,he can be a better person

    It’s to bad that peoples names get put on this site and others like, and are guilty until proven innocent. Life’s ruined and they are publicly guilty before they even have a chance to prove there innocence. I wasn’t there and I don’t even know the guy, but it’s to bad if he’s found innocent in court. I wish they would follow through with the incedent to find out the truth. Just saying!!
