EBR Jail: Jefferson booked after bond revoked
BATON ROUGE - Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson is in parish prison this afternoon after a judge revoked his bond from a 2011 battery arrest.
Sheriff's office spokesperson Casey Hicks said Jefferson turned himself in to a deputy, who transported him to the prison.
A district judge revoked Jefferson's bond this morning from a 2011 battery arrest, saying Jefferson's arrest last week on a marijuana charge violated the conditions of that bond.
Police accused Jefferson and three former other LSU players of marijuana possession when they said they found them, several bags of marijuana and scales at former cornerback Tyrann Mathieu's apartment last Thursday.
Karnell Hatcher and Derrick Bryant were also arrested at the apartment. Mathieu and Jefferson were charged with Simple Possession of Marijuana, Hatcher was charged with 2nd Offense Simple Possession of Marijuana, and Bryant is charged with Possession With Intent to Distribute Marijuana.
In Aug. 2011, Jefferson and teammate Joshua Johns were accused of felony battery after a fight outside a bar south of the LSU campus. A grand jury later indicted Jefferson for simple battery, a misdemeanor, and did not indict Johns.
