New Orleans police on has reportedly issued an arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. – alleging that he slapped a security officer on the butt.
A video surfaced this week, which appeared to show Beckham slapping the butt of a Superdome security guard in the LSU locker room after their national championship win over Clemson.
“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter,” the Browns said in a statement issued. “They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation.”
He may also be in further trouble, as in the same video, he was seen handing money out to his fellow players after.
“We are aware of the situation regarding Odell Beckham Jr. interacting with LSU student-athletes and others unaffiliated with the team following the championship game Monday night,” the LSU statement reads. “Initial information suggested bills that were exchanged were novelty bills. Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may have also been given to LSU student-athletes.
“We were in contact with the NCAA and the SEC immediately upon learning of this situation in which some of our student-athletes may have been placed in a compromising position. We are working with our student-athletes, the NCAA and the SEC in order to rectify the situation.”
