Saturday’s announcement that LSU had suspended freshman linebacker Donte Starks from the football team came a day after he was arrested in Marrero by Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives.

Starks, 19, was jailed Friday night on counts of illegally possessing a concealed handgun and attempting to run away from deputies who stopped him while investigating a complaint about armed men selling crack cocaine, Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jason Rivarde said Wednesday.
