Rickey Jefferson, the little brother of former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson, was arrested on February 2nd following a violent incident with police during Mardi Gras. Jefferson got involved when police were putting another teen in handcuffs. From the Times-Picayune:
David Sampson, 17, of St. Rose, allegedly began interfering with a narcotics investigation and refusing to stop using foul language, according to a Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit.
When the deputy told Sampson to stop using foul language, Sampson, a Destrehan High School student, allegedly told Collins, “f— you, b—-,” leading Collins to attempt to arrest the teenager, according to the arrest affidavit.
Enter Jefferson and another teen. From FOX8:
Deputies say one of the teens with Jefferson, David Sampson, started getting too close to the detective. They say Sampson was warned twice to back away.
After telling the detective an expletive, he walked away from the detective leading the detective to have to chase him.
This is where deputies say Jefferson got involved. When the detective was cuffing Sampson, they say Jefferson and Joe Sharp started punching the detective a number of times.
Rickey Jefferson is well on his way to replicating his big brother’s legacy at LSU. The four-star recruit out of Destrehan, Louisiana signed his letter of intent just a few days after the incident.
