LSU football player issued ticket for alleged fight

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - There is more off-the-field turmoil within the LSU football team. Freshman speedster Jeryl Brazil was issued a misdemeanor summons, basically a ticket, for an alleged fight that happened outside of an on-campus dining hall.

It happened on September 11, 2013. 9News has learned that Brazil was disciplined internally and that he did not play in last weekend's game against Kent State.

His status for the upcoming game against Auburn is unclear.

In July, 20-year-old Jeremy Hill pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in connection with a punch he threw outside a bar last spring. Hill was re-instated to the team in early August after a judge ruled the running back could remain on probation, even though he'd violated his probation for an earlier misdemeanor plea.

In August, Freshman LSU defensive back Rickey Jefferson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and has been sentenced to two years' probation. The charge stems from an altercation with a plain clothes officer at a Mardi Gras parade in Kenner, LA. Prosecutors say Jefferson apologized to the officer.
