According to a report from Nola.com, an arrest warrant has been issued for Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. following a “butt slapping” incident that occurred in the LSU locker room following Monday’s National Championship game.
New Orleans police on Thursday morning obtained an arrest warrant accusing NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. of simple battery in relation to a locker room interaction he had with a Superdome police officer Monday night.
A police spokesman said the warrant was issued after a video showed Beckham apparently slapping an officer’s buttocks after LSU’s championship game.
A law enforcement source said authorities originally sought a warrant for a misdemeanor sexual battery charge, but it was declined by a judge.
Here is the video which shows Beckham Jr. slapping a police officer’s butt.
