QB Anthony Jennings among 4 LSU football players arrested Thursday

New, comments

Thursday was not a good day for the LSU football program.

LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings is one of three LSU players who were arrested and booked on Thursday evening, according to The Baton Rouge Advocate. Jennings, defensive lineman Maquedius Bain, and defensive back Dwayne Thomas were all booked at a Baton Rouge jail together. Thomas has been charged with unauthorized entry of a dwelling and simple burglary, and Jennings and Bain were charged with unauthorized entry of a dwelling.

It's unclear whether these arrests are related to that of defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao, who was also arrested on Thursday and charged with simple battery and simple robbery in connection with a bar fight.

All four players have been suspended indefinitely, so there is a good chance this could end the quarterback competition and give the job to Brandon Harris by default.

Jennings started for the Tigers in 2014 but struggled, completing only 48.9% of his passes and throwing for only 1,611 yards, 11 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. Harris appeared in eight games, going 25-45 for 452 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions.
