As it turns out, the police officer who arrested Alabama football players Hootie Jones and Cam Robinson in Monroe, Louisiana, isn’t an LSU fan.
Alabama football coach Nick Saban insinuated that the officers who arrested the players were just “disgruntled LSU Fans,” according to AL.com. But now, the Monroe Police Department has spoken out on the issue.
“I can tell you for a fact that the first officer on the scene is not an LSU fan,” Chris Bates, the Monroe Police PIO, said, according to USA Today. “He hates LSU. He doesn’t like the color yellow or purple and gold. In fact, he’s a Florida fan. If you mention LSU around him, he throws up in his mouth. Most of our officers are LSU fans, but we have some who are Arkansas fans and Georgia fans and Alabama fans. And I’ll tell you this, the first officer did not even know those guys were players.”
