From BCS to jail in 10 months

Posted: Updated:

Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson is in a Louisiana jail after a judge revoked his bond in a 2011 simple battery case. The judge's action follows Jefferson's arrest last week on a marijuana charge.

Jefferson reported Tuesday to jail in East Baton Rouge Parish. State District Judge Chip Moore revoked Jefferson's bond, saying he had a "real problem with what's going on."

Moore ordered Jefferson to undergo a substance abuse evaluation. Jefferson was expected to appear before Moore again on Wednesday to have his case re-evaluated.

The 22-year-old Jefferson had been playing in the Canadian Football League as a quarterback but his lawyer says he is not playing there now.

Jefferson has been accused of beating a man in a fight outside a bar in 2011. He has pleaded innocent.
