BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU sophomore running back Lanard Fournette is out on bond, after authorities reported he was arrested for allegedly gambling illegally.

According to the arrest report by Louisiana State Police, Fournette got into L'Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge on Saturday with a driver's license that wasn't his. The report stated he immediately left the casino after being questioned by security.

Fournette, 20, of Slidell, was booked Monday afternoon into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. He is charged with using a fake ID to gamble. Court documents indicate his bond was set at $1,000.

The three-star prospect is the younger brother of former LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, who was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the fourth overall pick in this year's NFL Draft.
