BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

UPDATE: Sgt. Don Stone said the four LSU players will NOT meet with BRPD tomorrow.  Their attorney, Nathan Fisher, has requested 24 hours to review the case, so Sgt. Stone says they're now looking at Tuesday morning for the meeting.

Baton Rouge police released the following update Sunday afternoon regarding a fight near the LSU campus early Friday morning.

"Baton Rouge Police are investigating a fight that occurred around 1:30am on Friday August 19, 2011 outside Shady's Bar located near the campus of Louisiana State University. During the early morning hours on Friday police interviewed four people who stated they were treated at a Baton Rouge hospital for injuries they sustained during the altercation. In addition to these four individuals police have also interviewed several witnesses that were present at the time of the fight.

Preliminary investigation information indicates that the fight started after an individual, one of the four injured, blew his horn to move a crowd out of his way in the parking lot.

Based on statements given by all persons interviewed police learned that members of the LSU football team were involved in the fight. The exact number of players present during the fight has not yet been determined. On Saturday August 20th police contacted  LSU and asked that four LSU football players report to the Baton Rouge Police Headquarters on Monday August 22 at 9:00am so that investigators can interview them as to their alleged involvement in the fight. The four football players that have been asked to report are Jordan Jefferson, Jarvis Landry, Chris Davenport and Josh Johns.

The four players have been asked to report to give their side of the story, they ARE NOT being asked to turn themselves in to be arrested. The investigation will continue after these interviews. It is possible that police will interview other members of the team at a later time."
