Officer won't press charges after Odell Beckham butt slap

According to the warrant, he had the authority to arrest Beckham on the spot but did not, citing the "jovial atmosphere".

The police officer who was slapped on the behind by Odell Beckham Jr. following LSU's national championship victory has decided not to press charges, according to multiple sources.

In a 27-second video available on Twitter, a security officer is seen standing over an LSU player sitting on a locker room bench. "This legal matter has been resolved".

Beckham, who has faced gay rumors and anti-gay slurs, is from New Orleans and played for LSU.

In the original arrest warrant obtained by NOLA.com, the stadium officer was asked to enforce a no-smoking policy in the LSU locker rooms.

Odell Beckham Jr. celebrates in the locker room with Joe Burrow #9 of the LSU Tigers after their 42-25 win over Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff National Championship game at Mercedes Benz Superdome on January 13, 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The source expects the NOPD to withdraw the warrant as a result - which would effectively end the case against Beckham. And since it is not a felony charge, the Orleans Parish District Attorney's office is not involved in the decision at this stage.

No case has been instituted against Beckham because no arrest has been made.

The university's athletic department issued a statement saying it was aware of video showing "apparent cash" being given to players by Beckham and that it has been in contact with the NCAA and the Southeastern Conference regarding the matter.
