NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former LSU cornerback and NFL draft prospect Tharold Simon is facing possible charges in his hometown of Eunice for his alleged treatment of a police officer who ordered Simon to move his parked car out of the street.
Simon's agent, Peter Schaffer, disputes police accounts and says the officer overacted in a ``shameful'' abuse of power.
According to a police report first obtained by KATC-TV, Simon was arrested Thursday night on charges of public intimidation, resisting an officer and a noise violation. He was released on bond.
Police say Simon blared his stereo while moving his car, said he could have the officer fired for writing a ticket, then moved his arm away when the officer tried to arrest him.
Schaffer is certain Simon acted appropriately and will be exonerated.
