Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Jordan Jefferson, Chris Davenport, Josh Johns, and Jarvis Landry spending several hours inside State Police Headquarters this morning, where they were questioned by Baton Rouge police about the incident that happened outside Shady's Bar early Friday morning.
Even though they were all bombarded with cameras and microphones, none of the players said a word to anyone.
Four people were beat up and had to be taken to the hospital after a fight that BRPD says involved LSU football players.
In a press conference that wrapped up just a few minutes ago, police say there's still a lot of information to learn in this case. They go on to say this isn't a normal investigation, and it could take at least a week to wrap up.
We're told they've spent the past few days interviewing witnesses and then the players this morning, and there's still more witnesses, and possibly even more football players to interview.
