BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Police have issued arrest warrants charging LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and a teammate, Joshua Johns, with second-degree battery for a bar fight that injured four people last week, and the players have been suspended indefinitely.
Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone says in a statement Friday that investigators have contacted the players’ attorney, Nathan Fisher, and LSU coach Les Miles, and asked the players to turn themselves in.
Jefferson and Johns, a linebacker, face felony charges for their alleged roles in a fight outside Shady’s bar in Baton Rouge on Aug. 19.
A police report says a 19-year-old woman named Victoria Long said she witnessed several LSU players beating one of the alleged victims and saw Jefferson kick that man in the face.
