LSU Football player Ray Parker was arrested this morning after getting into an altercation with his girlfriend. He was suspended from the team following the arrest.

Ray Parker did not record a stat for the LSU Tigers last year, but he was starting to earn a bigger role on the Tigers defense. That will now be pushed back, after getting arrested yesterday.

Parker, 20, was arrested by LSU police and booked in jail around 8 a.m, according to an LSU Police Department arrest document. LSU coach Ed Orgeron announced that Parker was indefinitely suspended for violation of team rules.

According to a police report, Parker allegedly abused his girlfriend and destroyed personal items in her apartment, including an iPhone valued at $1,600. 

WBRZ is reporting that the two had been dating for about a year, but got into an argument shortly before the altercation, which led to Parker becoming enraged and destroying items around her apartment in addition to pushing her into a dresser, leaving a scrape on her hip. 

Parker came to LSU after having a solid career as a tight end for Ruston High School. He hauled in 22 receptions for 360 yards and scored 3 touchdowns as a senior.

The young pass rusher will now have to figure out his life outside of football before he can return. He was suspended by the team.
