Player Alleges Police Misconduct, LSU Responds

Jason Scott Headshot

Louisiana State University wide receiver Koy Moore claimed to have been harassed and “violated” by members of the Baton Rouge Police Department on Saturday, and three officers have been placed on leave as a result.

TV station WWNO reports that Moore, in a statement posted on Twitter, alleged officers pulled guns on him, assuming he had drugs or a weapon. Additionally, Moore claimed to have had his phone taken when he attempted to record the encounter via video.

“If I didn’t tell those incompetent officers that I was a LSU football player there’s no telling if I would’ve been here to tell the story,” Moore said in his tweet statement.
