Arrest Warrant Issued for Browns Odell Beckham Jr.

CANTON (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Just days after the LSU Tigers completed what some are calling one of the best seasons in college football history, the main topic of discussion from their dominant 42-25 win over Clemson in the National Championship game has nothing to do with any of the players who competed in the victory.

Instead, the focus is on former LSU Tiger and current Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. As first reported by, an arrest warrant has been issued for Odell Beckham Jr. due to an encounter he had with police following the game.

Less than an hour after the Tigers victory, reports surfaced that police had entered the LSU locker room and informed players that they would be arrested if they continued to smoke their victory cigars inside of the building.

Beckham Jr. was caught on video during an encounter between a police officer and a current LSU player. At the end of the video below, OBJ hits the police officer along his back side.

The warrant accuses Beckham Jr. of simple battery. A police spokesman told that the warrant was issued after the video above surfaced. Authorities originally sought a warrant for a misdemeanor sexual battery charge, but that was denied.

The Browns released a statement following the news of the warrant.
