Police find reason for LSU bar fight

Baton Rouge police say a bar fight involving LSU football players started when a driver honked his horn at a crowd blocking his way out of the bar's parking lot.

A news release from police Sgt. Donald Stone says the driver was one of four people sent to a hospital after the fight outside Shady's Bar.

Stone says police want quarterback Jordan Jefferson, offensive lineman Chris Davenport, defensive lineman Josh Johns and receiver Jarvis Landry to come to police headquarters Monday so they can be interviewed.

He says they have only been asked to tell their side of the story, not to turn themselves in.

Three people had minor injuries and a fourth was more seriously hurt. They have been interviewed, along with some witnesses.
