On Monday, it was reported that LSU defensive end Davon Godchaux had been put on indefinite suspension after he was arrested for domestic abuse and child endangerment charges. But while he will not face further legal punishment, he remains on suspension from the team.
Tuesday night, it was reported that all charges against Godchaux had been dropped due to the allegations by the unnamed woman being inconsistent in nature. There didn’t seem to be any credible physical evidence to bring a full case against the junior player.
“The primary basis for this change of booking (dropped charges) was the inconsistent statements of (the woman) and of Mr. Godchaux and the physical evidence,” district attorney Hilar Moore said. “And not her request to dismiss these charges.”
The Tigers are expected to face off against the Missouri Tigers on Saturday, their first game since head coach Les Miles had been fired. There is no indication on if Godchaux will be available to the team then.
On the year, Godchaux has two tackles for loss, two sacks and two fumble recoveries.
LSU and Missouri meet up on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. EDT with the game airing on SEC Network.
