Setting up tv mount but screw is loose in drywall stud

So I’m setting up this tv mount for my family. It’s overtop the fire place. One stud in the center and two on each side, the two on each side are too far apart for the plate to reach. So I decided to just screw in the middle stud with two lag bolts (one bottom and one top)and have everything else hang on 4 drywall anchors. Everything looks fine except for the middle bolts. They don’t seem to get tighter so the tv plate was moving before I added the drywall anchors. Is that something I can leave or do I have to plug that hole with glue and have at her again? Btw I drilled right through the stud maybe that’s why it’s not tightening. via /r/DIY
