Four former LSU football stars, including Jordan Jefferson and Tyrann Mathieu were arrested earlier today on drug-related charges. According to WAFB, the players were being booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison as of 4:45 p.m.

In addition to Jefferson – the former LSU quarterback who started in last season’s BCS National Championship Game – and Mathieu – who was removed from the team earlier this season for multiple failed drug tests (according to sources) – former defensive backs Karnell Hatcher, and Derrick Bryant were also arrested.

WAFB is reporting that Jefferson and Mathieu have been charged with Simple Possession of Marijuana. Hatcher was charged with 2nd Offense Simple Possession of Marijuana and Bryant was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana.

Around 3:30 p.m. police responded to a complaint about a man who was trying to force his way into an apartment complex at 262 West State in Baton Rouge, LA. Before the cops got there, the man was let into the complex by a resident and was seen going into an apartment. When police knocked on the door of that apartment, the resident, Tyrann Mathieu, answered the door.

Police smelled a strong odor of marijuana and received consent from Mathieu to search the aparment. Inside they found Jordan Jefferson (the man who was trying to force his way into the complex), Bryant and Hatcher.

They also found 10 bags of high grade marijuana, a marijuana grinder, a digital scale. Seven of the bags were found in Bryant’s backpack. Subsequently, all four men were taken into custody and arrested.
