Andy Berg Headshot

Three LSU students were arrested for burglarizing the university’s Tiger Stadium.

According to a report from the Baton Rouge CBS affiliate, WAFB, university police responded to Tiger Stadium around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 19 and arrested Michael Freetage, 18, of Cypress, Texas, who had been detained by a stadium security officer.

Freetage was found by security officers holding 12 LSU merchandise cups worth $84. Freetage was arrested and charged with burglary and has been released from prison on bond.

A review of surveillance footage shows that Freetage wasn’t alone. LSU police have since arrested Jacob Phillips, 19, of Ruston, and Travis Lecompte, 19, of Mandeville, with burglary. Both Lecompte and Phillips admitted to taking the cups while inside of Tiger Stadium and have  since been released from prison on bond.
