Jevonte Domond arrested for domestic abuse

LSU offensive lineman Jevonte Domond was arrested Monday on a felony charge of domestic abuse, according to multiple reports.

LSU offensive lineman Jevonte Domond was arrested Monday on a felony charge of domestic battery with strangulation, according to multiple reports citing police booking records.

LSU has suspended Domond indefinitely, according to spokesman Michael Bonnette.

Domond was reportedly arrested following an altercation with his fiancee in the presence of their newborn child. According to The Advocate's report, Domond allegedly grabbed his fiancee from behind by the neck while she was leaning over the baby's crib. The police report also alleges that Domond bit his fiancee on the lip and she pepper sprayed him multiple times in response.

Domond denied strangling or biting the alleged victim in his statement to police, according to reports.

Domond is still in East Baton Parish jail as of Tuesday afternoon, and is reportedly scheduled to have a court hearing Tuesday.

Domond exited the spring as LSU's backup right tackle. He played in one game as a sophomore in 2014, his first season with the Tigers. Domond transferred to LSU from Glendale Community College, becoming the first recruit offensive line coach Jeff Grimes landed with LSU. Domond would likely have a reserve role in the 2015 season.
