LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Joshua Johns have turned themselves in to Baton Rouge Police in response to arrest warrants issued earlier today.

Both have been booked into the Parish Prison on felony counts of second degree battery stemming from an August 19 fight outside of Shady's bar near LSU in Baton Rouge.

LSU football coach Les Miles is reported as having suspended both players from the team indefinitely.

Both Jefferson and Johns now face charges with maximum five-year sentences if convicted.
