BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Former LSU football stars Tyrann Mathieu and Jordan Jefferson have been released from jail after their arrests on marijuana charges.

Mathieu, who played cornerback until he was dismissed from the team, and Jefferson, who has been playing in the Canadian Football League, were released early Friday, as was Derrick Bryant, a former backup safety.

A fourth former player arrested in the case, Karnell Hatcher, remained in jail on Friday.

Police said Mathieu, a 20-year-old from New Orleans, and Jefferson, 22, of St. Rose, La., were booked Thursday at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of simple possession of marijuana.

Hatcher, 22, of Delray Beach, Fla., was booked with second-offense simple possession of marijuana. Bryant, 22, of Lawrenceville, Ga., was booked with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
