LSU's Jordan Jefferson and Josh Johns booked on felony battery charges
Jefferson and Johns turned themselves into police and were both booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, reports CBS affiliate WAFB.
A second-degree battery charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine up to $2,000. Both of the players posted a $5,000 bond on the charge. No timetable has been set on the suspension.
Jefferson and Johns are two of four LSU football players implicated in a fight outside a bar near campus. The other two players questioned by police, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and offensive tackle Chris Davenport, have not been charged.
A woman who claims to have witnessed the fight told police she saw Jefferson kick a man in his face during the fight, according to an initial police report released Thursday.
The report by the Baton Rouge Police Department stated officers responded to a 911 call about a fight in Baton Rouge around 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 19, reports the station.
In the report, the responding officer said no one was fighting when he arrived, but there was a crowd of people standing outside the bar.
