Two LSU players arrested for bar fight
Jordan Jefferson is turning himself in, along with backup linebacker Joshua Johns, after an arrest warrant was issued. These two apparently got into a nasty bar fight and now face charges of second-degree assault. That’s a felony in Louisiana in case you are scoring at home.
Both players suspended indefinitely.
“We will continue to cooperate with the authorities in an effort to find out exactly what took place during the incident,” head coach Les Miles said in a statement.
“As sad as this incident is, it’s important that we learn from this and that we take away a valuable lesson. This has weighed on all of us. It’s time for us to come together as a team and focus on what we are here to do.”
So, we wonder if LSU’s ranking might change. Regardless, this is quite an awful way to start the season.
