COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Three of the four teens arrested over the Weekend for having weapons and drugs in their car appeared in Recorder's Court Monday afternoon.

Xavier Fair, 17, Demetrius Morgan, 17, Adrian Johnson, 18, and Whitnee Duggan, 17, were all charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime after Columbus police received a 911 call claiming the teens were seen firing shots from their car.

In court, Johnson took responsibility for the nearly two ounces of marijuana and the digital scale that were found inside the car, which brings up the question of whether or not the drug charges will be dropped for the other three suspects.

Shavon Thomas, the attorney for Duggan, told News Leader 9, "I think by law the question isn't whether or not he accepts responsibility. It's whether or not the other passengers knew it could be inferred that they had something to do with it, which would probably be a question for the jury."

Duggan made bond Sunday. The three young men had their bond set at more than $10,000 each. Their case will be bound over to Superior Court.
