BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU linebacker Derrick Odom was charged with a misdemeanor Wednesday, accused of smashing a car window after a brawl at a nightclub last week.
Odom faces one count of simple criminal damage to property, according to Baton Rouge police. He was involved in a fight at The Varsity nightclub near LSU's campus early Friday, left the club and was caught on video when he returned an hour later and smashed an SUV window, police said.
A call to Odom's lawyer, Anthony Bertucci, was not immediately returned.
Coach Les Miles has said Odom, a backup, and backup quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who was also in the fight, were barred from practice this week. Miles said the two will likely not play Saturday, when No. 3 LSU faces No. 17 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Perrilloux was not charged in the brawl.
In September, Odom was arrested for the second time in less than a month, accused of damaging another LSU student's vehicle. Miles suspended Odom for three weeks in August, after the linebacker was arrested after allegedly damaging another student's vehicle and threatening the student. On Aug. 27, Odom apologized to the victims of the August incident and agreed to pay restitution.
