LSU football freshman wide receiver Koy Moore made a claim on Sunday, Nov. 8 that he was “violated numerous times” by police officers the night before. Both Louisiana State University and Baton Rouge Police Department are now investigating this incident.

Moore released a personal statement on Twitter and Instagram saying, “Last night I was approached by policemen. They pulled guns on me assuming I had a gun and drugs. I was violated numerous times, even going as far as trying to unzip my pants in search of a weapon that I repeatedly told them I did not have.”

In an attempt to pull out his phone to record the harassment, police officers snatched Moore’s phone away from him, according to Moore’s post. Moore also stated he told the officers he is an LSU football player.

After Moore’s statement, Baton Rouge Police Department Chief Murphy Paul released his own statement saying, “We appreciate Mr. Moore bringing this incident to our attention. As in every case, we will be collecting all available evidence and conducting interviews. Accountability and transparency are critical in building trust with the community. I pledge a thorough investigation into this complaint.”

Now that the investigation has been put into action, it has been announced that three Baton Rouge police officers have been put on administrative leave on Tuesday, Nov. 10 due to the allegations.

LSU head coach Ed Orgeron made a statement that said, “While I cannot comment on the investigation, what I can say is that we must work collectively to embrace our differences. We have to listen, learn and come together to combat social injustice and racism if we are to create a safer and more equitable society for all people.”

Moore finished his statement by saying, “As some celebrate the election of a new President, they understand the real problem has not changed. If I didn’t tell those incompetent officers that I was a LSU football player there is no telling if I would’ve been here to tell the story! Yesterday wasn’t only a victory for America it was only a distraction.”

Moore is a freshman wide receiver at LSU from Metairie, Louisiana. In his high school football career, he played at Archbishop Rummel. According to 247Sports, Moore was a four-star recruit and was ranked as the No. 299 overall player and No. 50 wide receiver.

Moore has been given the opportunity to play in four games this season with the Tigers and has had eight receptions for 70 yards with three catches.
