Jamal Joseph Vaughn, 20, was arrested Thursday morning in Prairieville by U.S. Marshal's Task Force. He's been booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and is charged with aggravated second-degree battery.
Baton Rouge police named a Gonzales man a suspect in the stabbing injury of an LSU football player in Tigerland early Tuesday.
A warrant for the arrest of Jamal Joseph Vaughn, 20, 42204 Conifer Drive, was issued Wednesday after his wallet was found at the scene of the crime.
LSU tight end Dillon Gordon, 22, was stabbed multiple times about 12:45 a.m. Tuesday at Reggie’s bar at 1176 Bob Pettit Blvd. in Tigerland. Gordon was released from the hospital later the same day.
According to the warrant, Gordon came out of the bathroom at Reggie’s and got into an argument with Vaughn that soon turned physical. Vaughn attacked Gordon, cutting him once on his chest, abdomen and thigh, according to the warrant.
Vaughn is wanted on second-degree battery, Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola said.
No arrest has been made, Coppola said, and police urge anyone with information to contact the agency’s violent crimes unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
The stabbing prompted LSU coach Les Miles to say later Tuesday he plans to ban players from venturing to bars.
