The grand jury is heading toward the courthouse Wednesday evening to tell a judge its decision on whether two LSU football players should be charged in the Aug. 19 fight outside a Tigerland bar.
The grand jury is looking into the alleged involvement of suspended LSU football players Jordan Jefferson and Joshua Johns in the fight in which several people were injured.
Jefferson and Johns were arrested Aug. 26 and booked on one count each of second-degree battery, a felony.
The East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury meets on the 10th floor of City Hall.
Jefferson, who arrived at the courthouse in the afternoon, was expected to testify.
Johns’ attorney Tommy Damico said Johns testified for about an hour today.
“I can tell you Josh has always maintained he is innocent, that this is an issue of misidentification,” Damico said.
Jefferson has been accused of kicking 21-year-old Andrew Lowery in the face during the fight outside of Shady’s bar.
Before Jefferson arrived, three other LSU football players arrived at the Baton Rouge courthouse. Those football players were identified as Evan Washington, Derrick Bryant and Lavar Edwards.
