BATON ROUGE - The lawyer for four men injured in a bar brawl involving a group of LSU football players are suing them and the owners of the bar where it happened.

The men filed suit against former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns, as well as DBJ Interests LLC, doing business as Shady's Bar.

They claim Jefferson and Johns seriously injured them in a fight outside the bar last August, and that Shady's didn't do enough to make sure people in their parking lot were safe.

Attorney Michael Bienvenue filed the suit on behalf of Eric Ewen, Jordan Wills, Cayne Cox and Andrew Lowery.

Lowery and Ewen claim they were kicked and beaten while on the ground, sustaining serious injuries to their backs and faces. Wills and Cox claim they had several cuts and bruises.

Police arrested Jefferson and Johns in suspicion of second-degree battery charges a week after the brawl.

A grand jury later indicted just Jefferson for simple battery. Both were suspended from the football team and missed six games.
