Warrants Issued For LSU Football Players Jordan Jefferson, Josh Johns For Battery

The wait for some kind of criminal charges to be filed in the assault case involving LSU players and a parking lot brawl this week has ended. According to Scout.com’s Randy Rosetta, the Baton Rouge Police Department has filed second degree assault charges against LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns. According to SBNation’s LSU blog And the Valley Shook, Jefferson is expected to turn himself in this morning.

The charges follow a week-long investigation by the Baton Rouge Police Department including a search of Jefferson’s apartment where police examined 49 pairs of the quarterback’s shoes, presumably to match a footprint left on one of the victims with Jefferson’s.

LSU is now left with a week to adjust to the absence of their starting quarterback, who will in all probability be suspended for his alleged headkicking of a Marine in the parking lot of a bar named “Shady’s.” (Yes, that all allegedly happened, and happened at “Shady’s” after midnight.)

The Tigers will now likely start second-string quarterback Jarrett Lee, who does have considerable starting experience and holds a 5-4 record as a starter. He also has a penchant for throwing interceptions, but has to worry slightly less about that after Oregon’s suspension of star cornerback Cliff Harris for speeding and driving without a license.
