NOPD Issues Simple Battery Warrant for Odell Beckham Jr., Sources Say

NEW ORLEANS (WDSU) – Three sources said the New Orleans Police Department has obtained a warrant for the arrest of Odell Beckham Jr. in connection to alleged contact he made with a security guard in the locker room after Monday’s national championship game.

A law enforcement source said the simple battery warrant was signed by a judge Thursday morning.

News of the warrant comes after video surfaced showing the New Orleans native, former LSU and current Cleveland Browns wide receiver appearing to touch the backside of a police officer in the LSU team’s locker room at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

TMZ and other outlets posted the video, which TMZ described as showing Beckham “smacking” the officers’ behind.
