BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

According to documents from the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, 22-year-old Jevonte Domond, an offensive tackle for the LSU football team, was arrested and charged with felony domestic abuse with strangulation.

A deputy spoke to the victim that said Domond choked her and battered her after a heated argument. 

The victim stated he grabbed her from behind her neck and lifted her completely off the ground by her neck and she began to lose consciousness. That is when she said he dropped her on the ground and she "almost blacked out."

Documents say the argument continued and the victim claims Domond would not let her leave, after asking several times. 

She told deputies that is when she maced Domond with pepper spray. She says he picked her up and slammed her on the couch and bit her. She told deputies she maced him again in self defense.

Documents say the victim was then able to leave and drive to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office substation. She told deputies Domond followed her in his car, but did not turn into the parking lot of the substation.

Deputies contacted Domond and said he and the victim "got into it" but he did not strangle the victim or bite her. He claimed the victim pulled a kitchen knife out on him and threatened to cut him. 

When asked by deputies, the victim said she did pull a knife out on him, but it was in self defense.

Domond's bond has not yet been set.

According to his bio on LSUsports.net, Domond, #67, is an offensive tackle. He is a junior at LSU and was recruited from Glendale Community College in Glendale, AZ. He committed to LSU on 5/13/2014.

Michael Bonnette, the LSU Sports Information Director, has released this statement:

"[Jeovonte Domond] been indefinitely suspended from the team. Coach Miles is out of town at SEC meetings. He's tried to reach Jevonte by phone but hasn't been able to speak to him yet."
