LSU Football Player Lanard Fournette Arrested for Attempting to Gamble Illegally
LSU sophomore running back Lanard Fournette is out on bond this morning after authorities say he was gambling illegally over the weekend at a Baton Rouge casino.
According to the arrest report, Fournette got into L'Auberge Casino on Saturday with a driver's license that wasn't his. The report says that he immediately left the premises after being questioned by security.
Fournette was booked into the parish prison on Monday afternoon. He is charged with using a fake ID to gamble. Bond was set at $1,000 and he bonded out earlier this morning.
Lanard Fournette is the younger brother of former LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, who was selected with the fourth pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in this year's NFL draft.
The younger Fournette is listed on LSU's sports website as a current running back in his sophomore year.
