BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson reported to a Louisiana jail on Tuesday after a judge revoked his bond in a 2011 simple battery case. The judge's action follows Jefferson's arrest last week with three other ex-players whom police say they found with marijuana in an apartment.
Jefferson's simple battery charge stems from a preseason bar fight, accused by authorities of beating a man near the LSU campus in August 2011. He was indicted by an East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury in September 2011 and has pleaded innocent.
On Tuesday, Jefferson reported to the jail of East Baton Rouge Parish.
``I have one way of doing things. I try to be fair,'' the judge said, according to The Advocate newspaper. ``I have a problem with someone who's out on bond being re-arrested. . I have a real problem with what's going on.''
He had been free for more than a year on a $5,000 bond.
Moore ordered Jefferson to undergo a substance abuse evaluation. Jefferson was expected to appear before Moore again Wednesday.
Jefferson, 22, had been playing in the Canadian Football League as a quarterback but his lawyer says he is not playing there now.
Moore also ordered that Jefferson be arraigned Dec. 12 in the case involving his arrest with the other ex-players.
Jefferson was arrested last week along with former LSU players Tyrann Mathieu, Derrick Bryant and Karnell Hatcher. They were taken into custody at Mathieu's apartment after police said they found marijuana. They were booked into jail, but Jefferson has not been charged by prosecutors in that case yet.
Mathieu, a one-time Heisman Trophy finalist, has no criminal record. He played cornerback until he was dismissed from the team in August after reportedly failing a drug test.
Lance Unglesby, Jefferson's lawyer, said Jefferson is innocent of any charge prosecutors might issue against his client in the drug case.
The attorney added: ``Jordan is a humble, fine young man and looks forward to putting all this behind him.''
