LSU OL Jevonte Domond suspended after felony domestic abuse arrest


LSU offensive lineman Jevonte Domond was arrested on felony domestic abuse charges after allegedly choking his fiancée.

The NFL is embroiled in how best to handle domestic violence cases and what the proper form of punishment should be for players and the teams who sign those troubled players, and sadly, the NCAA is no stranger to domestic violence plaguing college football.

LSU offensive lineman Jevonte Domond was arrested on Monday for felony domestic abuse with strangulation, according to the Baton Rouge Police Department.

According to the police report, via The Advocate, Domond grabbed his fiancée from behind by the neck while she stood over the crib of their newborn baby and lifted her off the ground and dropped her. Domond’s fiancee told sheriff’s deputies she began to black out and used pepper spray twice on the LSU lineman.

The police report also says Domond bit his fiancée on her hip, threw her on the couch and followed her to the police station. He denies the charges and claims his fiancée pulled a knife on him earlier in the day. She claims that was in self defense, however.

Domond transferred to LSU last season from Glendale Community College where he was ranked as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the junior college ranks and appeared in one game last year.

Update: Les Miles spoke at the SEC spring meetings and said he is gathering the specifics but Domond is suspended and it’s a crime that will not be condoned or a behavior that is tolerated
