BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The lawyer for Jordan Jefferson said the suspended LSU quarterback will testify before a grand jury that is deciding whether to indict him.
"He is going to answer any questions he is asked," attorney Lewis Unglesby said. "He didn't do it and he's anxious, anxious, anxious for this to be over."
Three of the four men reportedly injured in the fight outside a bar near LSU last month, including Andrew Lowery, testified Wednesday.
The grand jurors dismissed for the day just after 4 p.m. and are expected to reconvene next Wednesday to continue hearing testimony in the case. It is likely they will render a decision after next Wednesday's meeting.
The panel is meeting to decide if there is enough evidence to indict Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns. Both men face second-degree battery charges, which are felonies, in the case.
The brawl took place outside of Shady's Bar in the early morning hours of Aug. 19. Lowery, who is a Marine, was on the scene that night, but was not in uniform. He told police he tried to break up a fight in the parking lot and was attacked and kicked in the head.
The Baton Rouge Police Department said several witnesses reported Jefferson kicked Lowery in the head. Other witnesses disputed the claims and both players have denied any involvement in the fight. Investigators said DNA evidence gathered from both players was "inconclusive."
Minutes before the fight, Lowery was escorted out of the bar after allegedly harassing a woman inside.
The lawyer for Josh Johns declined to say if his client will testify.
