ZACHARY, La. (AP) A fight at a Waffle House in Louisiana landed a Tulane University football player in jail and a teenage girl in a hospital, police said.
Zachary Police Chief David McDavid told The Advocate the early Monday morning fight that led to the arrest of Tyler Judson, a defensive back on the university's football team, originated from an argument about a conversation on Instagram.
It is not clear whose relationship the argument was about, but McDavid said it appears to involve Judson and the girl he is accused of punching. Police did not identify the victim, but WWL-TV reported her to be a high school student. Her mother told the news outlet her daughter has many facial fractures and will likely need surgery around her eye and for a broken nose.
