Default Black footballer Odell Beckham arrest warrant issued for smacking police officer in LSU celebration


Odell Beckham arrest warrant issued after smacking police officer in LSU celebration

An arrest warrant in New Orleans has been issued for Odell Beckham Jr. for simple battery after he slapped a police officer during LSU’s national title celebration, according to multiple reports.

The 27-year-old Browns star receiver smacked the butt of a security guard who was chastising Tigers players in the Superdome locker room following LSU’s 42-25 win over Clemson in the national title game on Monday night.

“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter. They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation,” the Browns said in a statement.

A law enforcement source told NOLA.com that police pushed for a misdemeanor sexual battery charge, but that was declined by a judge. The incident appeared to be put on Instagram by LSU offensive lineman Andrew Magee and surfaced on multiple websites on Wednesday.

It’s the second Beckham controversy that has surfaced in the aftermath of LSU’s triumph. Beckham was also recorded handing money to players while celebrating on the field. After initially claiming that it was fake money, LSU admitted that that the cash was real.

“We are aware of the situation regarding Odell Beckham Jr. interacting with LSU student-athletes and others unaffiliated with the team following the championship game Monday night,” the university said in a statement Wednesday. “Initial information suggested bills that were exchanged were novelty bills. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.

“We were in contact with the NCAA and the SEC immediately upon learning of this situation in which some of our student-athletes may have been placed in a compromising position. We are working with our student-athletes, the NCAA and the SEC in order to rectify the situation.”

Beckham starred at LSU and was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Giants. Beckham was traded to the Browns this offseason and became the source of trade speculation amid a disappointing 6-10 season that led to the firing of coach Freddie Kitchens.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
