Arrest Warrant Issued for Odell Beckham Jr.



New Orleans police have issues an arrest warrant for Cleveland Browns’ superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on a complaint of simple battery, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.

The complaint was filed by a SuperDome security guard who Beckham slapped on the buttocks in the LSU locker room following the teams’ national championship over Clemson on Monday night. Video has surfaced of the incident.

Regarding simple battery in the state of Louisiana, punishment can include a fine of no more than $1,000 and imprisonment for no more than six months, or both, and is defined as battery committed without the consent of the victim.

Beckham is already under some scrutiny for handing out money to LSU players during the celebration, a clear violation of the NCAA rules, and something that the school is currently investigating.

The Browns have issues the following statement:
