Louisiana football players arrested on criminal charges

It seems as if some of the football players at Louisiana State University will need a good criminal defense soon. There were three of them that have allegedly gone afoul of the law. One defensive lineman was arrested for supposedly hitting a woman in the face, and two others were arrested because it is said that they may be involved in a burglary in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The coach for the LSU football team stated that the three men were suspended because it is a school policy, and a policy that the coach agrees with, to suspend any player that is accused of a crime or is involved in legal issues. He said that he met with the three players quite a bit and they are working with the authorities to determine what exactly occurred. The players are said to be complying and are cooperating with this investigation.

The redshirt freshman who supposedly pushed and punched a woman has been suspended indefinitely from the football program. Apparently, the scenario looked like this: The LSU player was allegedly taking a wallet and other belongings out of the pocket of a man who was passed out on the ground outside a local nightclub. This girlfriend allegedly saw it and started yelling for him to stop. That is when the football player allegedly lost his temper, pushed her and hit her in the mouth with his closed fist.

The other two players were accused of entering a building and trying to steal belongings. This is a misdemeanor, but it can be a heartbreaking situation if this goes on their permanent records and affects their scholarships.

These young men need a good attorney by their side. If you have been accused of a crime, you may want to contact a lawyer who has experience in these types of cases.
