LSU sophomore offensive lineman Ed Ingram, who was suspended by the team Aug. 3, was arrested the day before and charged with "two counts of aggravated sexual assault in Dallas County," according to Brooks Kubena of The Advocate.
According to that report, the investigation is ongoing. The police department of DeSoto, Texas, said the victim was a minor but "would not disclose the exact age," per Kubena.
Ingram tweeted about the suspension on Aug. 4:
"We have a policy set in place with the university," LSU Ed Orgeron said on Aug. 3, per Kubena. "He broke that policy, so we just need to see what happens."
On Aug. 18, Orgeron provided an update, noting that the matter was a legal issue:
As Kubena noted, "According to the LSU Athletic Department Code of Conduct, any athlete who receives felony charges 'will be immediately suspended.'"
While details on the incident that led to the charges have not been released, authorities were made aware of it in Aug. 2017, when Child Protective Services sent the DeSoto Police Department a report. The alleged assault reportedly dates to before Ingram's time with LSU, per Kubena.
Ingram served as a starter for LSU at right guard last season, manning the position for 12 games.
