BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU backup quarterback Ryan Perrilloux has been suspended from the team indefinitely after he was cited for trying to illegally enter a riverboat casino in Baton Rouge.
LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette said Tuesday the 20-year-old Perrilloux was issued a misdemeanor summons by police after allegedly trying to use his older brother's driving license to enter the Hollywood Casino.
The minimum age to board a riverboat casino in Louisiana is 21.
Perrilloux was one of the top recruits in the country in 2004, and was listed No. 2 on the depth chart behind starter Matt Flynn after spring practice.
Perrilloux was cited for one count of misrepresentation to gain access and released, said Baton Rouge Police Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said. Police were called to the casino about 5 p.m. Saturday by the boat's security guards, McKneely said.
Bonnette said Perrilloux could return to the team at coach Les Miles' discretion.
``The coach is going to monitor his situation,'' Bonnette said. ``He could return, but that's certainly not definite.''
Perrilloux could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Directory assistance did not have a listed telephone number for him.
