LSU Freshman LB arrested for gun possession, suspended from the team

LSU Freshman LB Donte Starks was arrested for gun possession

National Champion Louisiana State University are coming off of a great month, to be surprised with some bad news. Freshman linebacker Donte Starks, 19, has been suspended from the team indefinitely following his arrest on a gun possession charge.

LSU freshman linebacker Donte Starks, 19, was arrested Friday and charged with illegally possessing a concealed handgun and resisting law enforcement by flight, The Times-Picayune/ The New Orleans Advocate reported.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jason Rivarde said deputies were investigating a complaint about armed men selling crack cocaine. Rivarde said deputies tried to detain a group of men but Starks and another man ran. Deputies caught Starks and found a loaded handgun in his backpack.

Deputies didn’t find any drugs during Starks’ arrest and he has not been accused of selling narcotics, Rivarde said.

LSU’s head football coach Ed Orgeron announced Saturday that Starks was suspended indefinitely from the team for an unspecified violation.
