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.
