Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is in trouble in New Orleans, Louisiana. The star receiver was in the city to see his beloved LSU Tigers play in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night.
The Tigers defeated the Clemson Tigers, 42-25, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Beckham Jr. is being investigated for allegedly giving real money to players after the win.
But when the team was in the locker room, a security officer was in the locker room and talking to one of the Tigers players. Beckham Jr., who might have done this in good fun, slapped the officer on the butt.
However, the security officer then filed a compliant with the New Orleans Police Department. Beckham Jr. now has an arrest warrant following a simple battery compliant.
“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter,” the Browns said in a statement. “They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation.”
According to Justia US Law, a simple battery charge in New Orleans should be find no more than $1,000 or imprisoned for no more than six months, or both.
It is very likely that Beckham Jr. will receive prison time for this incident.
