LATE EDIT: News release from The Advocate late last night:
The East Baton Rouge Parish district attorney said he is pursuing charges against two men involved in a June 5 fight with LSU football players Zach Mettenberger and Sam Montgomery in which a loaded gun was pointed at the players.
District Attorney Hillar Moore III said charges will likely be filed against Marcus Adams, 22, and Robert Davis, 31, within the next two weeks.
Montgomery and Davis got into a fight following an argument in the parking lot of the West Campus Apartments, prompting Davis’ friend, Adams, to pull out a gun, the LSU Police incident report says.
Mettenberger tried to intervene and Adams pointed the gun at him, the report says.
So, there's that.
The latest development in The Great Shady's Fisticuffs Caper is that last night BRPD acted on a warrant to search Jordan Jefferson's apartment and obtain a DNA sample from him. (Video of the cops taking a lot of brown bags from his apartment via campus TV) WAFB's sources say the cops were looking for shoes that match a print on one of the victims shirts. Meanwhile 1210AM posted some grainy blurry footage that supposedly is from the fight, but you can't make anything out of it.
About the same time, Les Miles had his first radio show of the season, and aside from a Marine from Virginia asking why LSU hates America and a few "Make JJ the Punter" jokes, the calls were standard fare and Miles seemed to be back in his usually upbeat mood. The show is posted after the break.
