LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson turned himself in to Baton Rouge police today after authorities confiscated 49 pairs of shoes from his campus apartment on Wednesday.
Jefferson allegedly kicked a man in the head during a fight outside a bar last weekend and police are trying to match a footprint found at the crime scene to one of Jefferson's shoes.
Forty-nine pairs of shoes-- the cops are going to need a lot of foot spray.
According to ESPN, Jefferson is facing felony charges for 2nd-degree battery after Jefferson, and three other LSU football players, were accused of getting into a brawl outside a Baton Rouge bar where a man was kicked in the head and seriously hurt. Four people-- none of them football players-- were treated at a hospital.
Witnesses said the victim threw the first punch.
Today, LSU head coach Les Miles suspended Jefferson, along with linebacker Josh Johns. Miles gave no timetable for the senior QB's return.
If Jefferson's college and pro career are torpedoed by this incident, he can always open a Foot Locker store.
