Rookie New Orleans Saints linebacker and former LSU standout Harry Coleman was arrested after shoving someone out of the way at a casino.

Chitimacha police say Coleman was leaving a tribal casino in St. Mary Parish early Sunday when someone, possibly a football fan, approached him.

Police also say Coleman apparently wasn't amused and shoved the person.

Although no punches were thrown, the person filed a complaint and that Coleman cooperated when police told him they needed to book him on a misdemeanor simple battery charge.

Coleman was released without being jailed and remains with the Saints this week during scheduled offseason workouts.
