Bar employees: Alleged victim threw 1st punch in brawl involving LSU QB Jefferson, teammates
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) ' Two employees of the bar where LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and three teammates are accused of injuring four people in a parking lot brawl say one of the victims "threw the first punch."
Shady's Bar general manager John Peak and door manager Jordan Neldare told The Associated Press Thursday versions of the fight that differ from a police report.
The report includes a statement from alleged victim Andrew Lowery, who says he was punched and kicked repeatedly by LSU players after coming to the aid of a man pulled from a pickup truck. Another witness says she saw Jefferson kick Lowery in the face.
The bar employees say Lowery threw the first punch, "that's one thing we do know."
No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.
