BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) The attorney for LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and teammate Joshua Johns says they have turned themselves in and been released on $5,000 bond each.
Police obtained arrest warrants for the two players Friday on charges of second-degree battery for a bar fight that injured four people last week.
Attorney Shannon Fay, an associate of lead defense attorney Nathan Fisher, says “we will continue to diligently defend our clients, who we believe are innocent.”
The players also have been suspended indefinitely by the school.
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.
LSU opens the 2011 college football season against Oregon Saturday September 3rd at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
