LSU QB Anthony Jennings arrested, suspended

i (1)

The LSU QB situation was an absolute tire fire last year and this news doesn’t help that situation. This gives Brandon Harris the leg-up but with Les Miles track record with team punishment, I don’t think Jennings will be on the sideline for too long…


Four LSU football players, including quarterback Anthony Jennings, were arrested after allegedly entering the home of a fellow student, police records show.

Jennings, defensive lineman Maquedius Bain and defensive back Dwayne Thomas were arrested by LSU police and charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling. Thomas was also charged with simple burglary.

Jennings, Thomas and Bain’s arrests stem from an event Sunday. The three players, including at least three more black males, entered a West Campus Apartment, a police report says. They did so with the presumed intent to retrieve items that were allegedly stolen from Jennings’ apartment on June 10 – a MacBook Air, three pairs of shoes and a PlayStation 4.

The six or seven males were able to enter the bedroom of one of the residents, completely damaging the door frame and locks, the police report says. The other resident – the victim’s roommate – was there at the time.

He identified Thomas as leaving the victim’s room with boxes of shoes and a Sony PlayStation. The laptop had been returned to Jennings earlier in the week, the police report says.

The victim, who was out of town, returned to find the following missing from his room: a pair of grey/blue Georgetowns ($200), red/white Cherry’s ($120) and black 4’s ($200).

The roommate identified Thomas on Wednesday as the person who left the victim’s room with shoe boxes and the PlayStation. The roommate said he observed Thomas hitting his roommate’s door with his shoulder in an attempt to break in.
