Grand Jury Hears Evidence In LSU Bar Fight
East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hiller Moore says a grand jury has finished its first hearing in the case of a bar fight in which suspended Tigers quarterback Jordan Jefferson is accused of kicking a man in the face.
Moore, who spoke after Wednesday's hearing, says the grand jury is scheduled to reconvene next week for what will probably be its last hearing on the roles of Jefferson and reserve linebacker Josh John's in the Aug. 19 fight. The grand jury will then decide which charges — if any — are appropriate for the two players, who were arrested Aug. 26, booked with felony second-degree battery and suspended from the team.
Moore says he has invited the players to testify next Wednesday. Jefferson's lawyers say their client will testify.
