Mathieu Among 4 Ex-LSU Football Players Arrested
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Police say they arrested four former LSU football players, including one-time Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu, after finding them with marijuana at Mathieu’s apartment.
Baton Rouge police on Thursday said they also arrested ex-LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson, and former defensive backs Derrick Bryant and Karnell Hatcher.
Police say Mathieu, Jefferson and Hatcher were booked on charges of marijuana possession while Bryant faces a charge of possession with intent to distribute.
Police say they were called to the apartment complex after receiving a complaint about a man forcing his way through the security gate before going to Mathieu’s apartment.
Mathieu is a cornerback known as the “Honey Badger.” He had been dismissed from the Tigers in August for failing a drug test.
