Three LSU basketball players received summons on June 16 for allegedly shooting paintballs at pedestrians on campus, according to reports.
The LSU newspaper, The Reveille, reported summons were issued to Galen Ishan Alexander, 18, of Lafayette; Mayan Keer Kiir, 19, of Bradenton, Florida; and Wayde Kenneth Sims, 19, of Baton Rouge. The three students were released after the summons were issued.
Police responded to a report that a person walking along Dalrymple Drive was hit by paintballs.
On Wednesday night, LSU basketball coach Will Wade released a statement:
“I’m aware of the situation and we are dealing with the matter internally. I’m extremely disappointed in these players and the poor judgment they used. This is no way to represent LSU or our basketball program. They have a clear understanding of what our expectations are as a program both on and off the court.”
