CB Simon arrested on draft night

Ex-LSU CB Tharold SImon arrested on draft night; agent disputes account

Former LSU cornerback and NFL draft prospect Tharold Simon is facing possible charges in his hometown of Eunice for his alleged treatment of a police officer who ordered Simon to move his parked car out of the street.

Simon's agent, Peter Schaffer, disputes police accounts and says the officer overacted in a ''shameful'' abuse of power.

According to a police report first obtained by KATC-TV, Simon was arrested Thursday night on charges of public intimidation, resisting an officer and a noise violation. He was released on bond.

Police say Simon blared his stereo while moving his car, said he could have the officer fired for writing a ticket, then moved his arm away when the officer tried to arrest him.

Schaffer is certain Simon acted appropriately and will be exonerated.
