LSU suspends OL Donavaughn Campbell after arrest on Georgia Tech's campus

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU offensive lineman Donavaughn Campbell has been suspended following his arrest over a fight on the Georgia Tech campus over the weekend.

Campbell, a freshman offensive lineman, was arrested on two counts of misdemeanor battery early Sunday after an incident at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house in Atlanta.

According to an incident report, Georgia Tech campus police arrested Campbell and Georgia Tech defensive back Jalen Johnson -- who was booked on one count of misdemeanor simple battery -- after two complainants accused the players of punching them, resulting in injuries to their faces and heads.

Campbell's brother Christian is a redshirt freshman defensive back at Georgia Tech. LSU did not play last weekend, ahead of Saturday's matchup with top-ranked Alabama.

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has not suspended the Yellow Jackets defensive back, telling reporters Monday that "I would urge everybody to let all the facts come in and let the investigation unfold and then we'll make an appropriate statement and an appropriate action. But guys are innocent until proven guilty. Just because it happened doesn't mean they're always guilty, so let's let the facts play out."

Campbell has played in three games this season as a reserve guard for the Tigers, including two of the last three games. He played a season-high nine snaps in the Week 2 win over FCS Jacksonville State.

Johnson has made five tackles in eight games for Georgia Tech, contributing mostly on special teams.
