The investigation into what happened between LSU football players and others at a bar fight last Thursday night continues, and on Wednesday police were at the homes of four different LSU players, including Jordan Jefferson, searching for evidence. This after the Baton Rouge police interviewed the players on Tuesday, though no charges were filed.

What exactly were the police looking for in the player's home on Wednesday? Well, if Jordan Jefferson's bare feet are any indication, they were looking for some shoes. From our LSU Rapid Reporter Glenn Gulibeau:
Baton Rouge Police took the shoes off QB Jordan Jefferson's feet and 48 other pairs from his apartment during a search Wednesday night in relation to the ongoing investigation into Jefferson's and three other players' involvement in a bar fight last week, police spokesman Don Stone said. "Police seized 49 pairs of (athletic) shoes," Stone said.
That is a lot of shoes.

Police spokesman Don Stone would not comment directly on why the police were so interested in Jefferson's shoes, but he did say that the police usually look for blood stains on the clothes. There have been reports that one member of the LSU football team kicked a Marine in the face during the fight, though those reports have not been confirmed by the police.

This reminds me of the whole probable cause argument and scenario with the police.

For example, the police pull a vehicle over because it has windows tinted too darkly, or a busted light ... they ALWAYS find something else.

Well, this Baton Rouge police investigation checking the shoes for brain prints or loose teeth will DEFINITELY become an NCAA extra benefits case.  Stupid athletes with their clothes, cars, and jewelry (and tattoos).

Assuming, conservatively of course, that a pair of shoes runs you an average of $50, Mr. Jefferson has nearly $2500 in footwear in his apartment.   This may provoke a NCAA investigation of a whole different sort before it's all said and done.   Seriously, are we supposed to believe he has money to buy that many pairs of shoes?

If Jefferson did kick the guy while he was down, I don't think any LSU fans would want him to play.  Hell, many don't want him to play either way.  Jefferson just seems to docile to me to do something like this, but obviously someone kicked the Marine.
