Former LSU basketball player Jordy Hultberg was arrested Saturday on charges of domestic abuse battery and simple battery, according to East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office jail records.
Hultberg was arrested early Saturday at his home and was released four hours after after being booked, according to NOLA.com’s Jim Kleinpeter, who cited a police report. Both charges are misdemeanors.
The arrest report notes that Shannon Hultberg, Hultberg’s estranged wife, accused Hultberg of pushing her into a dresser and also pushing her cousin outside of his home, Kleinpeter reported.
Shannon Hultberg went to Jordy Hultberg’s home after the couple’s daughter expressed concern about her father’s well-being. The report said Shannon found Jordy with another woman, who then fled to another room.
Shannon Hultberg also accused her estranged husband of grabbing her chin and kissing her forcibly, but she refused medical treatment.
Jordy Hultberg was a four-year letter winner for the Tigers (1975-80) and now has his own radio show with 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, La..
