BATON ROUGE - Police investigating a fight outside a Baton Rouge bar last night said LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and other LSU football players are believed to have been involved in the disturbance.
EMS responded to a call at the location on East Boyd Ave. around 2 a.m., but didn't transport anyone to the hospital.
Sgt. Don Stone with Baton Rouge Police said Jefferson was implicated in the altercation, and witness statements implicated other football players as well. Jefferson was not arrested, and Stone said they are still investigating.
This afternoon LSU released the following statement from head coach Les Miles:
"We are aware of the incident that took place at an off-campus location at which some of our players were present. We don't know to what extent our players were involved. We are trying to gather as much information as possible to get a better understanding of what exactly took place last night."
News 2 will have more on this developing story tonight starting at 4 p.m. and online at WBRZ.com.
