Police: LSU players delay meeting about bar fight

August 21, 2011 - 6:05 PM

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Baton Rouge police say four LSU football players have hired a defense attorney and put off a meeting with police about a bar fight.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Monday.

Sgt. Donald Stone confirmed in an email that attorney Nathan Fisher arranged the postponement. Stone did not say if a new date has been scheduled.

An earlier news release said the fight started when a driver honked his horn at a crowd blocking his way out of the parking lot outside Shady's Bar, and the driver was one of four people injured.

Police have said that LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson, offensive lineman Chris Davenport, defensive lineman Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry were asked to come to police headquarters to tell their side of the story.
