ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Worth County teenager came to us Friday to issue a public apology for vandalizing Worth County High School.

18-year-old Terrance Davis says he was drinking Wednesday night when he and two friends entered the school through an unlocked door.

They were caught on several surveillance videos throughout the school. They vandalized the art room and grabbed some tools and went up and down the hallways breaking windows.

They caused roughly $2,500 in damage. Davis is out of jail on $5,000 bond. He wants everyone to know he's sorry.

"I want to apologize to everybody. Students, even teachers it didn't affect," said Davis. "I don't know if they had to clean it up or not, but I apologize to the whole student body, and Worth County faculty and staff, and I just ask everybody for their forgiveness."

Davis says he also apologizes for damaging prom decorations in the art room as well as busting out windows in the principal's office. He hopes to clean up his act and eventually earn his diploma at a second chance school and go into the military. The other suspects, 18-year-old Davori Simon and 19-year-old Joshua Molina are still in jail.
