Of all the females in the world, former Louisiana State University linebacker Tahj Jones and offensive tackle Brandon Winey had to pick the same girl to lust after.
Unlike one of the ditties a hitmaking rapper can create for a comical affair, this story had a horrible ending.
The two former LSU players beefed so badly last night, the conclusion led to Jones being laid up in the hospital in serious condition after taking a bullet to the midsection.
Reports Fox Sports:
Jones, 24, went to the apartment complex to visit a woman and Winey arrived shortly after to visit the same woman. A fight ensued, and Winey pulled out a handgun and shot Jones in the abdomen, Coats said.
The woman drove Jones to a hospital in Sulphur. He was transferred to Rapides Regional Medical Center in Alexandria for surgery Saturday morning. Hospital spokeswoman Charla Ducote said Jones was in serious condition following surgery.
Winey fled in his vehicle and was later arrested at his house in Lake Charles, Coats said. Winey, 36, was charged with attempted second-degree murder and remained jailed Saturday in Sulphur on $1 million bond, according to the Sulphur police department. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
Winey last played in the NFL in 2004 so unless he’s an investment wiz, chances are he will be rotting in his cell because professional footballers players are notoriously bad with their money.
