LSU Strength Coach Arrested

An LSU Police investigation that already netted one arrest has now gone inside the University. WAFB 9 News has confirmed that assistant LSU strength and conditioning coach, Travelle Gaines, has been arrested for violation of sports agent laws. This is a felony in Louisiana. The charges may also violate NCAA regulations.

Two weeks ago, Charles Taplin of Houston, Texas was arrested for talking to LSU football players about signing as a client for an agent Taplin was representing. Now that the University has been implicated, it's unclear at this point how this will affect the football teams status this year.

A news release with the details on Gaines's arrest is expected to be released early Tuesday afternoon.
