Suspended LSU wide receiver Drake Davis had two counts of child pornography added to his list of charges just days after being arrested and held without bail after two arrests in recent weeks for charges of battery against his girlfriend.
According to reports, the child porn counts were added after authorities found child pornography on Davis’ cell phone while investigating the domestic abuse charges.
Davis was arrested for a second time in the span of a month Sunday morning after being accused of beating his girlfriend, and he has been held at East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without bail since that arrest.
Orgeron declined comment after the second arrest, calling it “a legal matter” during his press conference Monday afternoon.
“This is in the hands of the university and obviously a legal matter,” Orgeron said. “That’s all I’m going to say about that.”
On Monday, Davis’ attorney told The Advocate Monday that her client had submitted his resignation from LSU.
LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said Wednesday that Davis remains suspended indefinitely from the team, but that the university has yet to receive the paperwork for his resignation.
“Right now he is still currently a student, and his status with the suspension stands,” Ballard said. “We are aware his attorney has made those statements that he plans to withdraw, but we haven’t received anything as of now.”
Ballard said the university has no comments on the addition of two child pornography counts to Davis’ list of charges.
Davis caught four passes for 153 yards with two touchdowns in two seasons at LSU. LSU recruited him as a four-star athlete out of IMG Academy.
