LSU defensive lineman Davon Godchaux was arrested Monday morning on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery/child endangerment and false imprisonment, an East Baton Rouge Police Department spokesperson confirmed on Monday.
Godchaux was released on a $20,000 bond at 11 a.m. ET after being held for nearly four hours and faces an arraignment that will likely be scheduled within two weeks, according to the spokesperson.
Godchaux (6-foot-4, 299 pounds), a junior defensive tackle, is among the top interior defensive linemen in college football. He made 20 tackles with two sacks and two fumble recoveries in the Tigers' first four games of the season.
His latest arrest came less than 24 hours after head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron were fired. Godchaux's position coach, defensive line coach Ed Orgeron, has been promoted to interim coach to replace Miles.
