Odell Beckham Jr. Arrest Warrant Issued

Odell Beckham Jr. Arrest Warrant Issued”

Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. is facing an arrest warrant in New Orleans in connection to his alleged actions toward a security guard in Louisiana State University's locker room following the College Football Playoff title game on Monday night.

Odell Beckham Jr., a Louisiana native and former LSU player, can be seen in the video watching as the unidentified officer admonishes players for smoking cigars in the locker room.

New Orleans police emphasized the guard is not one of their officers.

According to Roman Antonio Vargas of Nola.com, the New Orleans police obtained an arrest warrant accusing Beckham of simple battery after an incident in the LSU locker room. Check back for updates. Beckham has already been under scrutiny over potentially breaking NCAA rules by handing cash to players, but this legal scrutiny is potentially much more problematic for him.

The incident appeared to be put on Instagram by LSU offensive lineman Andrew Magee and surfaced on multiple websites on Wednesday.

"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".

Quarterback Joe Burrow, a senior who won the Heisman Trophy, said in a "Pardon My Take" podcast from Barstool Sports that he received money from Beckham. "Initial information suggested bills that were exchanged were novelty bills".

If it were real, that would be a violation of NCAA bylaws. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.
