A motion filed by attorneys for suspended LSU quarterback Jordan
Jefferson says several alleged victims in a bar brawl involving LSU
players incited the melee with racial slurs and that Jefferson's only role in the fight was to pull teammates away.
The motion asks a judge to rule police had insufficient evidence to arrest Jefferson for second-degree battery last month. It also says the injuries to a man who accuses Jefferson of kicking him the face were not serious enough to warrant a felony arrest.
Defense attorney Lewis Unglesby says a total of 25 witnesses --
including several LSU football players -- have provided statements
for the motion. Another man involved in the fight had three fractured vertebrae, but no one has been arrested for his injuries.
