LSU's Brazil issued summons for damage, battery

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU freshman football player Jeryl Brazil is in legal trouble for the second time in two months after allegedly grabbing a woman by the neck and shoving her down, then punching a hole in her wall.

University police public information officer Cory Lalonde says Brazil was questioned and issued misdemeanor summonses for criminal damage to property and simple battery early last Friday. Lalonde says Brazil denied the battery allegation.

Brazil, of Loranger, La., is listed as a defensive back but saw his only action on offense early this season against UAB, with two carries for 10 yards. He hasn't played since.

On Sept. 11, Brazil and another male student received misdemeanor summonses for disturbing the peace by fighting.

Lalonde says police reports will be forwarded to the district attorney.
