The incident happened last Friday at the West Campus Apartments and involved a female. A summons issued to Brazil was for simple criminal damage to property and simple battery. Witnesses at the apartment say that Brazil pushed a woman down into a sofa while holding her down by her neck and also punching a hole in the wall at the apartment complex.
Now we know why Brazil did not travel with the team to the Ole Miss game. Being that this is Brazil's second incident within a two month span, he is likely to be kicked off the team.
Brazil, a freshman on the LSU football team, is a running back for the Tigers. He is originally from Loranger, Louisiana. His only play time this season came in the game against UAB where he ran for a total of 10 yards.
Brazil was also arrested on September 8, 2013 for disturbing the peace outside a dining hall on campus, arguing with another student.
East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore’s office will be handling the case(s).
