On the list of "things we don't want to happen this week," this falls near the top:
LSU backup quarterback Ryan Perrilloux was "beat up" during an altercation at the Varsity Theatre on Highland Road early Friday, his attorney, Nathan Fisher, said Sunday.
Perrilloux contacted Fisher about 2:45 a.m. Friday to advise the lawyer about the fight and question whether he should press charges, Fisher said. Fisher said he advised him not to do so and said Perrilloux was not at fault in the incident.
"My understanding is he got beat up," Fisher said. "I'm confident after listening to what he had to say that he's innocent of any wrongdoing."
He said he did not think Perrilloux suffered any serious injuries.
The only bright side so far is that it appears that Perrilloux won't be charged with anything. But, after the trouble he had prior to the season, the ice he is standing on is mighty thin.
