The University of Georgia released cell-phone records Friday that show about 250 text messages exchanged, over a period of a few weeks, between former athletics director Damon Evans and the woman who was in the car with him when he was arrested.
The records show that Evans and Courtney Fuhrmann, 28, exchanged four texts shortly after 9 a.m. on July 1, the morning after both were arrested in Atlanta -– Evans on a DUI charge and Fuhrmann on a charge of disorderly conduct.
The records also show that Evans placed two phone calls to Fuhrmann, lasting a total of eight minutes, on the night of July 1, about an hour after he held a news conference in Athens to apologize for the arrest.
Georgia released Evans’ cell-phone bill for the month beginning June 7 on Friday afternoon; it was not available when UGA handed over about 500 pages of documents earlier this week in response to an open-records request from the AJC.
The records released earlier included a May 21 e-mail from Fuhrmann to Evans. That e-mail indicated they met on May 20, about six weeks before the arrest that led to Evans’ resignation as Georgia’s AD.
