Another freshman LSU DB arrested

Odell Beckham AP

Last week, freshman LSU defensive back Jeryl Brazil was arrested on a simple battery charge.

This week, it’s a lather, rinse, repeat report for another Tiger freshman with a similar charge at the same position.

Both the Baton Rouge Advocate and New Orleans Times-Picayune reported Thursday that Kavahra Holmes was arrested last week following an on-campus incident. Both of the papers confirmed that the redshirt freshman was arrested for simple battery at around three a.m. local time.

The Times-Picayune described the situation that led to the arrest as such:

Witnesses told police Holmes, 19, pushed two victims to the ground after a verbal altercation turned physical at the ‘5’ dining hall near West Campus Apartments on Oct. 22, LSU police public information officer Capt. Cory Lalonde said. One of the victims did not wish to pursue charges, but both the victims and a witness identified Holmes as the person who pushed the victims to the ground, Lalonde said.

As a result of the arrest, Holmes, as was the case with Brazil, has been indefinitely suspended by the football program.

This season, Holmes, a three-star member of LSU’s 2012 recruiting class, has played in one game.

    You need to do a better job keeping your LSU boys under control. Both of these “young men” were arrested for “simple battery”. If the “simple battery” was performed on me, it wouldn’t be so simple! These guys would pay and pay large! Of course, I would not be out all hours of the night gallavanting around looking for trouble. I didn’t do it when I was young and I certainly don’t do it now! What say ye, Suprmous?

    Time to crack down on curfews and attitudes.

    It’s 3:00 am… do u know where your players are?

    If the young men can’t police and take responsibility for themselves… then Les needs to do so.

    LSU players were so much gentler when they were all stoned. Errrbody simple battering these days.

    News flash, people in the south like to fight. Especially young people. A simple fight should not result in charges, unless it goes to far. Fights usually start by both people going to far. Fights, not attacks, there is a difference. In my travels I find there are two types of people, ones that grew up around people who will fight, and those who don’t. Those that did tend to be respectful to others. You don’t take a co-worker’s lunch if you think they might mash your nose. That is also why PETA isn’t throwing paint and blood on people down here.

    regardless of whether people in the south “like to fight” or not, it was 3 am in the freaking morning…these are college students…they are athletes…dont they have class or practice in the morning? dont they have curfew, or because LSU is on a bye week, the players were allowed some lee-way?

    Im not suprised….what Im getting real sick of is seeing continued news reports of young men and women making the police blotter and local news for doing stupid ish……..We see this everyday in Houston on our local airwaves, mofo’s who are 18, 19, 20, in the prime of their young lives, getting arrested and earning criminal records for some BS…

    the key question for LSU football is, will Les Miles suspend these players or will he let their teammates “vote” on the procedure?

    News flash for Normtide ! Undisciplined, socially disassociated, non-student, self-centered punk jocks, fight !
    These kids do not belong on a college campus, neither as students, nor jocks. It would be interesting to know, if they went to classes, and if so, what courses, and GPA ?

    the sec at its finest, you could have a hell of a team just with the players who have been in trouble. Put them together and you would beat Alabama

    For those talking about why there are no curfews, remember that “progressive”-thinking administrators had the NCAA ban athletic dorms in the name of “socializing” athletes and making them feel more a part of the total college experience. Instead, it’s had the effect of coaches having a much harder time (or even an impossible one) of policing their charges’ behavior away from the field, including not wandering around at 3:00 in the morning. Perhaps stuff like this will get them to rethink their position.

  13. normtide says: Nov 1, 2013 2:35 PM

    So, there would be no fights in colleges if there was no athletes?

    SEC bashers, remember this when I post on the police blotter articles involving other leagues. Most of which lately involve non SEC teams. Go back and look.

    Look what this protected generation has wrought. An NFL offensive lineman claims bullying for being called a weirdo. I really hope we don’t have a war in twenty years, we won’t have any fighting men left by then.

  14. polegojim says: Nov 1, 2013 3:45 PM

    @Norm… Southern or not…

    It’s a ‘fight’ when 2 guys agree to throw down & go.

    It’s ‘battery’ when one person decides to punch/pummel someone who is not a willing participant. Even if verbally antagonized… there’s a ‘walk away’ period that precedes battery. It’s a choice.

    Want to show how manly you are??? You get to go to jail. That’s the prize.

    BIG Difference… even for you southern boys…

  15. friarjack61 says: Nov 1, 2013 5:42 PM

    As it has always been, it takes a man, to walk away from a fight !

    “…I find there are two types of people, ones that grew up around people who will fight, and those who don’t. Those that did tend to be respectful to others.” normtide.

    Left unsaid, but alluded: Those who didn’t grow up in a violent environment aren’t respectful of other people. Wow. Are you drunk?

    We have laws so that people don’t try to settle differences with various levels of violence. There are even rules on the football field to keep the players from trying to kill each other.

    A civilized society settles its differences in non-violent ways and doesn’t need the threat of being punched out (or shot) to act in a civilized manner. I feel bad for anyone that had to grow up in an environment where only those who resort to violence garner any respect.

    Please, save the speech. Repercussions are a good thing. Also, if you can’t defend yourself, I hope your rescuers are fast.

  18. normtide says: Nov 1, 2013 6:50 PM

    And the lack of respect between the haves and the have nots goes the other way around. Your condescending post reeks of it

  19. onbucky96 says: Nov 1, 2013 10:47 PM

    I’ll just hope on the S.E.C. Hate Wagon..typical conduct from the elite schools in the S.E.C. Think I’m wrong, check out the arrest records of Georgia, Florida, and LSU. What do these tools major in, Criminal Studies?

  20. suprmous says: Nov 2, 2013 12:03 AM

    gamecocker, I just saw this. I hadn’t heard bout this cause I’ve been out of pocket up til today. I agree they should be dealt with and quite heavily. Nobody should be pushed around whether it be male or female. I refuse to standby and let some jerk push me aroun. I’ve got 3 who’d have my hide tho I be a female if they heard I’d let somebody push me aroun. And all of that 825 lbs comin down on this 125 lber wouldn’t feel so good. Now what’cha think of da mous’ attitude? Think I’m just a mealy mouth l’il smart ass female who just runs her mouth to herself speak and writes to see her name in print??

  21. suprmous says: Nov 2, 2013 12:12 AM

    Anoesis, I refer back to my friend Tyrann Matthieu. That kid grew up on the streets with no upbringin until his grandmother took him in. When she died he was alone except when he first got to LSU. He was accepted by the Coachin Staff, players, and students; along with the faculty. Still feelin insecure he lashed out got in trouble with the wrong crowd. He tried to get his act together only to fail again. It wasn’t until John Lucus stepped in and took up time with him he started partly on the road to recovery. Then he fell off of that road again. Still not raised to be a bad kid (manners still in tact) his aunt and uncle took him in. He then repeated his mistakes. It wasn’t until Patrick Peterson and his family took him in and took up time with him that he finally saw what family was all about again. He continues to do well and impress not only me with his change of attitude but many more includin the NFL and others associated with the NFL. At least he had the luxury if you wanna call it that of seein both sides of the fence: growin up in the streets and knowin what it is to have manners and respect for himself and others.

    I see there’s one who came on here incognito and voted me down, way to go Woman. Try to push harder next time, haha. Mental problems will get ya locked up in a hurry.

  23. thegamecocker says: Nov 2, 2013 9:23 AM


    You’re the BEST! I figured something was up when I didn’t see a response from you. What I like about you the most is your objectivity. You call it as you see it, pro or con, to LSU. I hope you are never “out of pocket” again. Hang in there because your posts are always worth the read!

    Thanks Gamecocker, I try to be fair with everything I say and do but it seems that I manage to rub a few’s tailfeathers the wrong way with doin so. Not only have my folks but the Holy Terror 3 have always told me to see things from every angle before makin a judgment call and sayin anything. As for bein “out of pocket” I hope I don’t have to be AWOL again but it looks like I will be and out of commission for some time just don’t know when for sure. I’m tryin to talk my surgeon into after football season (both College and Pro) but that remains to be seen. I keep remindin him that means after the Super Bowl as well. He told me sounds like if it were up to me I’d love to see football 12 mos a year 365 days a yr. I told him that’d work, knowin it’d never happen. And that’s how I feel bout the impendin surgery: I’d like to see it never happen cause it’s gonna be worse than the knee replacement, arggggggggggg. But any who’s and what’s at thanks again for the vote of confidence. Da Mous

    @Da Mous

    Sorry to learn of your impending surgery. Thoughts and prayers with you on that. I hoe my Fighting Gamecocks win the SEC East but we need some help from aTm when they play Mizzou later this season. Hang in there……you’ll be OK.

  26. suprmous says: Nov 4, 2013 1:39 AM

    gamecocker, thanks for the thoughts and prayers. I know of many who’ve lost the battle after havin the surgery done and that’s one of the very exact reasons I don’t wanna have it done but the consequences are even worse if I don’t. It’s a crap shoot no matter what I do. I don’t dare bring it up to the Holy Terror 3 and folks cause I know what they’d all say and I just don’t care to see their reactions. Again thanks again for the thoughts and prayers, from one scared mous.

  27. thegamecocker says: Nov 4, 2013 8:22 AM

    @Da Mous

    I feel you, Sister. Worry doesn’t do any good so my reco is to take one day at a time and move forward. Get the deed done b/c life is nothing more than a Poker Game with God…..only he can tell ya when to “hold ’em and when to fold ’em”. But you continue to have my thoughts and prayers.
