LSU running back Lanard Fournette was reportedly arrested on Monday afternoon for the use of a fake identification in an attempt to gamble at a Louisiana casino.
According to a report from WAFB in Louisiana, the younger brother of former LSU star Leonard Fournette was taken into custody by Louisiana State Police on Monday and booked at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison as a result of the events that transpired at the L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge on Saturday.
The police report indicates the younger Fournette, who is 20, tried to use an identification that was not his to gamble, and upon questioning from casino personnel he left the scene.
Per WAFB, Fournette is “charged with using a fake ID to gamble. Court documents indicate his bond was set at $1,000.”
The younger Fournette, who is a New Orleans native from St. Augustine High, was a consensus three-star recruit in the Class of 2015. He will attempt to work his way onto the field in a running back rotation behind star RB Derrius Guice this fall.
Per Ross Dellenger, LSU coach Ed Orgeron is aware of the arrest and Fournette will be disciplined “internally” by the football program.
#LSU teams spokesman Michael Bonnette says Ed Orgeron is aware of Lanard Fournette's arrest.
"He will be disciplined internally."
