LSU broad receiver Koy Moore released a statement detailing an incident on Saturday night in which he said police pulled guns at him and “trespassed” him multiple times.
An LSU spokesperson confirmed that the university and the Baton Rouge Police are investigating Moore’s claims.
Moore, who posted the statement on Sunday, said police officers blocking him claim he had guns and drugs.
“I’ve been compromised many times even trying to pull off my pants looking for a weapon I have repeatedly told them I don’t have,” Moore said in the statement.
When he tried to record interactions with police, Moore said his phone had been “snatched from his hand.”;
“When some people are celebrating the new presidential election understand that the problem really hasn’t changed,” he wrote. “If I don’t tell those incompetent officers that I am an LSU footballer then nothing if I am not here to tell the story! Yesterday was not a victory for America, it was just a win. is a distraction. “
LSU coach Ed Orgeron released a statement on Sunday night saying he was aware of Moore’s “serious statements”.
While Orgeron will not comment on the investigation, he writes, “We must listen, learn and together fight social injustice and racism if we want to create a safer society. and more equal for all. “
Like many shows around the country, LSU players held a march in late August to speak out against racial injustice after George Floyd was killed while in the custody of the Minneapolis Police. .
