BATON ROUGE - An eyewitness says she saw LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson kick someone in the face during a bar fight that injured four people last week.

The account from 19-year-old Victoria Long was included in a police report released Thursday, a day after police seized 49 pairs of athletic shoes from Jefferson's apartment. Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone wouldn't explain why police took the shoes.

Stone says no arrests are expected Thursday.

Jefferson and three teammates - offensive lineman Chris Davenport, linebacker Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry - were interviewed by police this week about the fight that occurred in the parking lot of a bar were police say numerous LSU players were gathered. Long told police that she also saw Johns attacking the man kicked by Jefferson.
