BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The LSU football player arrested on a felony domestic abuse charge appeared in court for a bond hearing Wednesday morning.

Bond for Jeovonte Domond, 22, was set at $3,000. Court officials said the victim stated on record she was not afraid of Domond and no protective order was issued.

The district attorney's office added the judge told Domond any new incidents would result in his bond being revoked.

He is charged with felony domestic abuse with strangulation. LSU said he has been suspended from the team indefinitely.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said the victim told a deputy that Domond choked her and battered her after a heated argument.

According to documents, 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. She reportedly said that is when he dropped her on the ground and she "almost blacked out."

Documents stated the argument continued and the victim claims Domond would not let her leave, after asking several times. She reportedly told deputies that is when she maced Domond with pepper spray. She said he picked her up and slammed her on the couch and bit her. She told deputies she maced him again in self defense and was able to leave.

According to his bio on LSUsports.net, Domond, No. 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.
