LSU starting quarterback Anthony Jennings has been arrested according to reports.

Jennings, DB Dwayne Thomas and DL Maquedius Bain were all booked into a Baton Rouge jail after being charged with “unauthorized entry and simple burglary“.

As well as Jennings, Thomas started five games for the Tigers last season, posting 24 tackles.

According to a report by ‘The Advocate’, the players entered an apartment on LSU’s West Campus “with the presumed intent to retrieve items said to have been stolen from Jennings’ apartment on June 10 — a MacBook Air, three pairs of shoes and a PlayStation 4.

After breaking in, the three players (and four others, as it’s been reported) – as witnessed by the victim’s roommate – made off with some shoes and a PlayStation 4. The paper noted that the laptop had come back to Jennings a week earlier.

Local police booked Jennings and the two others for unauthorized entry, although Thomas was noted to have been the person who smashed the door in with his shoulder.

This news comes after DT Trey Lealaimatafao was arrested on Thursday for robbery and hitting a woman.

All four players have been indefinitely suspended by LSU head coach Les Miles. He said, according to a tweet by The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger: “We have suspended these players. It has been our policy to suspend players who have been involved with legal issues. I have met with all the players extensively….This is an on-going investigation.”

THE BOTTOM LINE: Jennings is thought to be LSU’s starter for 2015, despite having an inconsistent 2014. Jennings went 111-227 for 1,611 yards and 11 TDs, with 7 INTs. At LSU’s Spring Game he was said to be much-improved alongside QB competitor Brandon Harris. Although now, with this news, it looks at though Harris is favorite.
