Arrest Warrant Issued For Odell Beckham After Assaulting Police Officer During LSU Celebration

Odell Beckham found himself in hot water Tuesday morning after video of him passing out thousands of dollars in cash to LSU players following their National Championship victory over Clemson surfaced.

As if violating NCAA rules wasn’t enough trouble to be in, the LSU alumni and current Cleveland Brown WR is in even hotter water after New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant to Beckham for simple battery on a police officer.

The incident happened in the locker room following the Tigers’ win, caught on video by a player filming. 

The cop was seen telling an LSU player to make sure his cigar was put out properly when Beckham, positioned behind the officer appeared to slap the officer’s butt.

The officer, who may have been jealous he wasn’t getting handed hundreds of dollars like those players were, turned and exchanged some words with Beckham, but did not issue an arrest at the time. 

According to ProFootballTalk, authorities originally wanted Beckham charged with misdemeanor sexual battery, but a judge denied that request.
