Instead of the LSU Football team getting prepared for the upcoming season and the huge game against #3 Oregon on September 3rd, the Tigers are dealing with a legal battle instead involving at least four of their players.

Baton Rouge police released a statement last night saying that a meeting has been set with four LSU football players to talk about an incident at a bar last Thursday night.It is unknown if the University or head coach Les Miles will also attend the meetings with the police.


LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson and three of his teammates have decided to meet with police at an undisclosed time and location Tuesday.

Police Sgt. Don Stone announced Monday night that the meeting would take place and said authorities are keeping the details secret to ensure "the integrity of the investigation is not hampered or disturbed."

Police have asked Jefferson, along with offensive lineman Chris Davenport, defensive lineman Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry, to offer their recollection of last Thursday night's fight.

Four people were injured in the scuffle, none of them players, and one person's injuries were serious enough that two players could face felony battery charges, Stone said. He said two other players could be charged with misdemeanor simple battery. He declined to say which two players could face the more serious charges.

With the Tigers currently ranked #4 in both the USA Today Coach's Poll and the AP poll and there huge game on September 3rd in Dallas Cowboys stadium against the #3 ranked Oregon Ducks, LSU and its football program certainly does not need this distraction nor do they need to lose the likes of there starting QB Jordon Jefferson and other key members of the team all due to an off campus incident.

We will have to see how this goes Tiger fans!!  What is your take on it???
