NOPD Issues Arrest Warrant For Odell Beckham Jr
The fallout from LSU's National Championship game continues as New Orleans Police have issued an arrest warrant for NFL star, and former LSU standout, Odell Beckham, Jr.
Beckham is wanted for his behavior after the game in the LSU locker room. Here's video showing Beckham spanking a police officer.
ESPN is reporting on this ongoing story, and reported the following this morning:
"Louisiana statute defines simple battery as battery committed without the consent of the victim. Punishment in Louisiana can include a fine of no more than $1,000 and imprisonment for no more than six months, or both.
The Browns did not immediately comment on incident.
Immediately after LSU's 42-25 victory, video also captured Beckham passing out money to several of LSU's players.
The university's athletic department issued a statement Wednesday saying it was aware of video showing "apparent cash" being given to players by Beckham and that it has been in contact with the NCAA and the SEC regarding the matter."
