The viral video from inside the LSU locker room showed Beckham putting his hands on the officer’s backside.
New Orleans issued the arrest warrant for the Cleveland Browns wide receiver today after a video surfaced of Beckham assaulting a security guard who entered the LSU locker room during the post game festivities. Jr.
The Superdome security guard was said to have been in the locker room to enforce the no smoking rule after some players puffed on celebratory cigars following their national championship victory over Clemson last night. The New Orleans Police Department confirmed that the security guard did in fact file a complaint against Beckham.
According to NOLA.com, authorities originally attempted to charge OBJ with misdemeanor sexual battery, but a local judge declined it and it was issued as simple battery. Beckham has yet to speak on the matter or turn himself in.
