BATON ROUGE – A fight involving two LSU football players outside the West Campus Apartments on June 5 is just now coming to light while a police investigation of a Aug. 19 fight continues to unravel, but the players in the earlier fracas were not the aggressors, according to LSU Police.
Marcus Adams, 22, and Robert Davis, 31, were arrested in early June and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish prison on charges of simple battery, aggravated assault with a firearm, illegal use of a weapon and carrying a firearm on school property.
Adams allegedly pointed a gun at LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery, who had been arguing and fighting with him on the apartment grounds at 2:30 a.m. June 5, according to LSU Police. Adams also allegedly pointed a gun at LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who saw the fight and yelled at Adams to calm down, according to LSU Police.
Montgomery said he “pleaded for his life,” when the gun was on him, the LSU Police report said.
Several LSU football players have been interviewed about the incident in addition to Montgomery and Mettenberger, but none have been arrested. West Campus Apartments is the home of many football players and other LSU athletes.
East Baton Rouge Parish district attorney Hillar Moore III is expected to file charges against Adams and Davis soon as the case proceeds to the court process.
