Odell Beckham Jr. won't get in trouble for passing out cash to the LSU Tigers after they defeated Clemson in the National Championship game, although his alma mater could face sanctions.
However, he is in trouble for something else he did in the locker room: slapping a police officer right on the buttocks.
The cops had been threatening to arrest players for smoking cigars inside and when Beckham saw an officer talking to offensive lineman Damien Lewis he smacked the man in blue in the behind. From the look on OBJ's face, he immediately knew he goofed.
OBJ wasn’t gonna let that officer spoil the fun.. told him to get the gat. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/sWoWj53r42— 🕊 (@wannabjoyful) January 14, 2020
Today, New Orleans police issued Beckham a simple battery arrest warrant. They had initially tried to charge the NFL star with sexual assault, but a judge rejected that.
Simple battery can get you up to six months in prison and a $1000 fine but it probably won't.
