The investigation into this past weekend's bar brawl heated up Wednesday afternoon, as Baton Rouge Police detectives searched LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson's apartment, according to USA Today. Detectives were searching for evidence related to this weekend's incident.

There are no plans at this time for detectives to search the residences of the remaining LSU players implicated in this case: Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, offensive tackle Chris Davenport and linebacker Josh Johns. 

The fight started after an individual blew his horn to move a crowd out of his way in the parking lot of Shady's, a bar just off the LSU campus. It is said that the four LSU players in question, and possibly more LSU football players, were celebrating the end of two-a-day practices. 

This happened just three weeks before the Tigers travel to Dallas to play the third-ranked Oregon Ducks in the The Cowboy Classic.

The four players were interviewed Tuesday morning before turning their focus back to football, completing their final scrimmage before next weeks game.

After the scrimmage, LSU Head Coach Les Miles said, "I'm aware of today's developments. I recognize the four players have been interviewed by the police department. They are cooperating fully. That investigation continues and is ongoing. We will certainly continue to help the process."

The Tigers offense combined to throw for 277 yards and added another 250 yards on the ground. Senior quarterbacks Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee took most of the snaps during the scrimmage. 

"I thought the quarterbacks threw the ball extremely well," Miles said.

Despite Jefferson's implications in the fight and cooperation in the police investigation, it seems that he is still focused on becoming LSU's starting quarterback and leading them to their second national championship in five years.
