Police: Battery at LSU union a hoax
BATON ROUGE - LSU Police say a girl lied about a battery on campus some time before kickoff of the LSU game.
Capt. Cory Lalonde, LSU police, tells News 2 that the girl accused the man of bumping into her and then grabbing her arm. She later said she lied about the part where the man grabbed her arm.
A text message sent to students and faculty just after 6 p.m. says, "A battery was committed by an adult male in the LSU student union against a juvenile female. Police in the area. Please use caution and remain vigilant."
Lalonde says no charges will be pressed.
Back in February, an LSU student made up a story about a kidnapping attempt. Leila Marlene Wolfe, 22, of Denham Springs, told police a man in a "box style" black van tried to abduct her. She later admitted the story was a lie.
