BATON ROUGE, La. (WGNO) – Four LSU football players, including starting quarterback Anthony Jennings, have been suspended indefinitely following two separate incidents.

One of the four -- has been charged with a felony.

Defensive lineman Maquedius Bain, Jennings, and cornerback Dwayne Thomas were all booked with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling. Thomas was also booked with simple burglary.

According to a Louisiana State University police report, 6 or 7 large black males forced their way into an LSU student’s West Campus Apartment. The men all “wearing T-shirts football players wear,” then stole two or three pairs of shoes and a Sony PlayStation 4, a student who lives in the house told police.

Police have identified Thomas as one of the men who stole a pair of shoes.

The incident happened on Friday, June 12.

Reports suggest the other men may have been trying to get back items Jennings said were stolen from him.

The starting quarterback filed a report with LSU police two days earlier (June 10), saying a MacBook Air, PlayStation 4, and 3 pairs of shoes were stolen from his apartment.

Jennings, Bain, and Thomas were booked into East Baton Rouge Parish prison Thursday evening (June 18).
