Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson was incarcerated again Tuesday, days after his arrest in Baton Rouge, La., on suspicion of marijuana possession.
According to WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge, District Judge Chip Moore ordered Jefferson imprisoned for violating terms of a bond he posted last year after the quarterback was charged with battery following a bar fight.
The TV station reported that Jefferson was booked into jail Tuesday afternoon, and that he was undergoing a substance-abuse evaluation.
Jefferson's next court hearing will be Dec. 12, according to the report.
"We respect the decision of the court," said Lance Unglesby, Jefferson's defense attorney, according to the TV station. "We expected this decision that was made by Judge Moore. Mr. (Jefferson) is here to honor any and all obligations imposed upon him."
Jefferson and former LSU players Tyrann Mathieu, Derrick Bryant and Karnell Hatcher were all arrested Thursday on marijuana charges. Mathieu, Jefferson and Hatcher were charged with simple possession of marijuana. Hatcher's charge was for a second offense. Bryant was charged with an intent to distribute.
Mathieu and Jefferson were released from jail Friday, ESPN.com reported.
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, a police search of Mathieu's apartment, where all four men were present, found a marijuana grinder, digital scale and 10 bags of high grade marijuana -- seven of the bags in Bryant's book bag.
Jefferson quarterbacked LSU to the BCS national championship game last season, helping the Tigers beat Georgia in the SEC title game. LSU lost to Alabama for the national title.
Jefferson, 22, was in training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this summer. Most recently, he was on the roster of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes.
