PORT ALLEN - Sheriff's deputies in West Baton Rouge arrested a former LSU and NFL player after his neighbors said he made threatening remarks after a relative was shot.

Deputies arrested Norman LeJeune last night in suspicion of public intimidation, terroristic threats and resisting arrest, according to Col. Richie Johnson with WBRSO.

Investigators said LeJeune is a cousin of Etan Irving, who was shot and killed after an argument at a Port Allen gas station. Deputies arrested Carl Richardson in suspicion of second degree murder in connection with the killing.

Johnson said after the shooting, LeJeune went to the neighborhood where Richardson lived and threatened residents in that area he would blow the place up. When authorities arrived, Johnson said LeJeune also threatened them.
