Four LSU players met with police Tuesday to discuss last week's bar fight, and police said they were cooperative with investigators.

"They did not invoke the fifth amendment. They gave their side of the story," Baton Rouge police chief Dewayne White said. "They provided additional witnesses they knew were there that night, and those were witnesses we intend to run down and get their statement."

Quarterback Jordan Jefferson, offensive lineman Chris Davenport, linebacker Josh Johns and wide receiver Jarvis Landry were interviewed separately during a span of several hours Tuesday.

Coach Les Miles addressed the situation after Tuesday's scrimmage.

"I'm aware of today's developments. I recognize the four players have been interviewed by the police department," Miles said. "They are cooperating fully. That investigation continues and is ongoing. We will certainly continue to help the process.”

More players and witnesses could be questioned by police, and while no charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, it is still very possible that both could happen.

Investigators are still in the fact-finding stage, and this investigation could take more than a week to complete.

The fourth-ranked Tigers open their season on Sept. 3 against No. 3 Oregon at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
