Donte Starks, LSU freshman linebacker has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
Head coach Ed Orgeron made the announcement in a statement issued on Feb. 1. LSU officials later confirmed the suspension was handed down a day after Starks was arrested in Marerro by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies reported Starks was booked on illegally possessing a concealed handgun and attempting to run from deputies.
Starks’ suspension is the first major disciplinary action of the offseason following LSU’s College Football Playoff National Championship win on Jan. 13.
“I know everybody saw or heard the news but I want y’all to know that I’m truly sorry for the disappointments,” Sparks stated in the post.
