I knew this news was coming when I saw video of police investigators leaving Jordan Jefferson’s apartments with several bags filled with evidence.

Police have issued arrest warrants charging the LSU quarterback and teammate Joshua Johns with second-degree battery for a bar fight that injured four people last week, and the players have been suspended indefinitely.

Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone says in a statement Friday that investigators have contacted the players’ attorney, Nathan Fisher, and LSU coach Les Miles, and asked the players to turn themselves in.

Jefferson and Johns, a linebacker, face felony charges for their alleged roles in a fight outside Shady’s bar in Baton Rouge on Aug. 19.

A police report says a 19-year-old woman named Victoria Long said she witnessed several LSU players beating one of the alleged victims and saw Jefferson kick that man in the face.

I hope this will be a lesson to all college kids. Just walk away from situations like this.
