The Cleveland Browns recipient, Odell Beckham Jr., was given a New Orleans Police arrest warrant for beating a security guard on the buttocks after Monday night’s LSU victory.
NOLA.com said: “A police spokesman said the warrant was issued after a video showed Beckham apparently patted a guard’s buttocks after the LSU championship game.”
The arrest warrant for Beckham relates to “simple battery related to a locker room interaction he had with a Superdome policeman on Monday night,” the report said.
Here is a video of the alleged butt gossip.
There is a good chance that this story will end without any significant effects. And it should be honest. In fact, other things Beckham Jr. did on Monday night are likely to have a bigger impact in the long run.
But while Beckham has done nothing apparently terrible here, he has shown little respect to a law enforcement officer and now he faces the consequences.

The Browns issued a brief statement after it became known that Odell Beckham Jr. had an arrest warrant.
