Officials say it happened around 1 a.m. Sunday when the man was attending a party and got into an argument. The university says that the man returned to his car, which was parked in a school lot, and fired a gun several times in the air. Authorities then took the man, identified as Alex R. Marshall, into custody.
Marshall is not a student at the school.
He faces a number of weapons charges including possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.
A telephone message left Sunday for Marshall was not immediately returned.
