Four LSU football players hired a defense attorney and put off a meeting with police about a bar fight that started when a patron honked at a crowd blocking his exit from a parking lot, Baton Rouge police said Sunday.
Quarterback Jordan Jefferson, offensive lineman Chris Davenport, defensive lineman Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry had been asked to give their side of the story at police headquarters Monday, but attorney Nathan Fisher asked for a delay, Sgt. Donald Stone said.
Attorney Nathan Fisher requested “a 24 hour postponement so that he can meet with the players and get a better understanding of the incident,” Stone wrote in a news release.
He said police would speak with Fisher on Monday to arrange the interviews, which had previously been set for Monday morning.
“We just got the case at 8 a.m. today,” Fisher told the Times Picayune of New Orleans. “I just met with the kids this morning.”
