An arrest warrant has been issued by the New Orleans police department for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham faces a charge of simple battery after footage emerged appearing to show him slapping a police officer on his behind in Louisiana State University’s locker room following their College Football Championship victory over Clemson on Monday night.
The Browns said in a statement: “We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter.
“They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation.”
