NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The New Orleans Police Department has obtained a warrant for the arrest of Odell Beckham, Jr. after video surfaced showing the former LSU star wide receiver allegedly touching the backside of a security guard.
The allegations stem from an incident that took place inside the locker room at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after the Tigers’ historic national championship victory on Monday, Jan. 13.
OBJ is facing a charge of simple battery.
The Cleveland Browns issued a statement Thursday just before noon.
“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter. They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation,” a spokesperson for the team said.
Beckham is already in hot water for his on-field antics immediately following the game, during which he reportedly threw wads of cash at players, potentially violating NCAA policies.
