Sports Fan Insider
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Joshua Johns have been suspended indefinitely by the school and are expected to turn themselves into police after arrest warrants were issued charging them with second-degree battery for a bar fight that injured four people last week.
Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone said in a statement Friday that investigators have contacted the players’ attorney, Nathan Fisher, and LSU coach Les Miles, and asked for 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.
