LSU's Jevonte Domond arrested, indefinitely suspended
BATON ROUGE - Jevonte Domond, an offensive tackle for the LSU Tigers, is in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without a bond following a Memorial Day arrest for felony domestic abuse battery.
Domond, who saw little playing time last season, was arrested after his fiancé told detectives he choked her to near unconsciousness during a fight. The woman, who was not identified in arrest documents, said she had to pepper spray Domond to try and get away but he fought back and "slammed her on the couch" then bit her. She said she eventually sprayed him a second time, got to her vehicle and drove to an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office substation where she filed a report.
Deputies wrote they noticed obvious injuries and a witness backed the woman's claims.
Domond told investigators, the woman pulled a knife on him earlier in the day and said he did not strangle or bite her.
Domond was indefinitely suspended from the team, LSU told WBRZ News 2.
