New Twist In Odell Beckham Arrest Warrant Situation
A new twist in the Odell Beckham arrest warrant situation has emerged.
The Cleveland Browns receiver made headlines this week when he was caught on camera slapping a security officer’s butt following Monday’s college football title game.
During postgame celebrations, an exuberant Beckham ran up to a security officer who was talking to someone else and offered him a slap on the rear end.
One day later, the New Orleans Police Department came out and announced an arrest warrant had been issued for the receiver. He was charged with simple assault.
Fortunately for Beckham, it appears the warrant will be rescinded.
According to the Times-Picayune, the security officer who was the victim of Beckham’s actions does not wish to press charges.
“By Friday evening, the 48-year-old officer had signed an affidavit stating he did not wish to press charges against Beckham, 27, a day after New Orleans police obtained a warrant to book the Pro Bowl receiver on a count of simple battery,” the report stated.
It remains to be seen if the Browns organization or NFL will penalize Beckham for his actions in any capacity.
Given the radio silence from both over the course of the past week as this matter has unfolded, it is doubtful that anything will happen.
