Looks like OBJ might walk away from this incident with a slap on the wrist.
The Superdome police officer whose butt was slapped on video by NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. after LSU’s national championship victory Monday has decided he does not want to press charges, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the case.
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 sources said.
The NOPD could now move to rescind the warrant calling for Beckham’s arrest, on the grounds that the officer victimized in the case has essentially said he does not believe his case is a criminal matter. But it remains to be seen whether the agency takes that step.
