BATON ROUGE - Police said former LSU running back Jeryl Brazil turned himself in Friday night as part of a burglary investigation.

Cpl. Don Cappola said the 19-year-old Brazil and his attorney came in this evening and surrendered to an active warrant for his arrest.

Police got the warrant after they said Brazil went into an unlocked apartment on Nov. 26 and stole some money. Investigators said Brazil was visiting friends at another apartment in the complex at the time, and was spotted by surveillance cameras on the property.

A Twitter account titled @TheReal_Jbrazil posted the following Friday afternoon: "Still love LSU! LSU never did me wrong, I did LSU wrong! Still love my tigers".

LSU head football coach Les Miles kicked Brazil off the football team Thursday after police announced the arrest warrant. Brazil had previously been suspended from the team after his second arrest in a two-month span. The first arrest came after police said he grabbed and shoved a woman by the neck, the second after police said he was caught fighting while on the university campus.

Sports 2 will have more on Brazil's arrest coming up at 10 p.m.
