Four former LSU football players, including former Heisman trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu, were arrested Thursday and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on several drug-related counts after 10 bags containing 18 grams of “high-grade marijuana” were found inside Mathieu’s apartment, Baton Rouge police spokesman Lt. Don Kelly said.
Mathieu, 20, 262 W. State St., and Jordan Jefferson, 22, 11959 Nicholson Drive, were booked on one count each of simple possession of marijuana, according to prison officials. Karnell Hatcher, 22, Delray Beach, Fla., was booked on one count of second-offense simple possession of marijuana and Derrick Bryant, 22, 11959 Nicholson, was booked on one count each of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
