LSU Quarterback Anthony Jennings Among Four Players Arrested, Suspended

LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings was among four Tiger players who were arrested Thursday for two separate incidents. Jennings, as well as cornerback Dwayne Thomas and defensive lineman Maquedius Bain were arrested after they broke into a residence in which Jennings thought some of his property had been stolen.

Authorities charged all players with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and also charged Thomas with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.

Defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao was also arrested Thursday after he was charged with attempted simple robbery and simple battery for his role in a bar brawl that took place on Tuesday at a parking lot of a Baton Rouge bar.

On Friday, all were suspended indefinitely by head coach Les Miles.

More from the Baton Rouge Advocate, which first reported the news:

“We are still working with campus housing and the authorities to determine what exactly took place,” Miles said in the statement. “This is an ongoing investigation and our players will cooperate fully.”
The four players were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison, and three of them bonded out at 8:21 p.m. Thursday. Jennings had a bail of $5,000, Bain a bail of $5,000 and Thomas $10,000. The three players were spotted leaving the prison in LSU gear.
