Odell Beckham, Jr. Issued Warrant For Slapping Police Officer On Butt + Under Investigation For Allegedly Giving Cash To LSU Football Players
In celebration of his former LSU Tigers victory at the NCAA National Championship Monday (Jan. 13th), Cleveland Browns’ receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. couldn’t keep his million-dollar hand to himself while in the Tigers locker room. In a video, OBJ was seen enjoying LSU’s first national championship win since 2007 when he took his right hand and slapped a New Orleans Police Officers butt.
On Thursday morning (Jan. 16th), the NOPD issued the LSU first-round pick an arrest warrant accusing OBJ of simple battery in relation to a locker room interaction.

Soon after, the Cleveland Browns released a statement saying OBJ and his team are cooperating with the police in reference to his warrant,
“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter. They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation.”
In addition to his warrant, OBJ is also being investigated by LSU for allegedly passing out handfuls of one-hundred-dollar bills to the college’s football players. According to reports, the money OBJ was seen handing out to two different players as he took in their victory inside Mercedes-Benz Superdome Monday was allegedly fake.

But just a day after LSU’s epic national championship victory, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow appeared on Pardon My Take and alleged that Odell Beckham, Jr. actually gave him money.
“I’m not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yes.”
