Suspended LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson’s lawyer wants Baton Rouge police to return some of the almost 50 pairs of shoes they took from his client’s home last month, court documents say.
Baton Rouge attorney Lewis Unglesby also wants police to give him the affidavit of probable cause for search warrant, which formed the factual basis for the court to authorize the search, a motion to return property and produce affidavit says.
The motion was filed Wednesday in state District Court Judge Chip Moore’s court.
Tommy Damico, the attorney for suspended LSU linebacker Joshua Johns, said he will file a similar motion Thursday.
Damico said his motion will ask for the affidavit of probable cause for search warrant but will not ask for the four pairs of shoes taken from his client’s home last month.
Damico and Unglesby’s motions follow the Aug. 26 arrests of Jefferson and Johns.
Both men were arrested and accused of kicking a man lying on the ground during an Aug. 19 fight outside Shady’s bar, 623 E. Boyd Drive.
Four men were injured in the fight and several football players were present, police have said. Witnesses have given conflicting accounts about what happened during the brawl, police have said.
Jefferson and Johns, both 21, were suspended indefinitely from the football team after surrendering to authorities and being booked into the Parish Prison on one count each of second-degree battery.
Both players posted a $5,000 bond and were released.
