Report: Former IU defensive tackle arrested after incident in LSU locker room

According to a report by WBRZ News in Baton Rouge, police arrested former IU football defensive tackle Ralph Green III Monday on several charges after he “walked into an LSU locker room without authorization, threatened several people, and resisted law enforcement and first responders.”

The report indicates Green was arrested and booked on several assault-related charges, including battery of emergency medical service, resisting an officer by force, battery of a police officer, and public intimidation.

This is not Green’s first run in with law enforcement.

In 2015 when he was a redshirt junior at IU, he was charged with battery, public intoxication and disorderly conduct.  The battery and public intoxication charges were dismissed, and Green plead guilty to disorderly conduct and served one-year probation and completed 50 hours of community service.

Green was recruited to IU by former head coach Kevin Wilson and joined the program in 2012.

Green III appeared in 47 career games for IU from 2013 to 2016, with 19 starts along the defensive line. He made 92 tackles, 53 solo, with four sacks (16 yards), 21 tackles for loss (62 yards), eight pass breakups, one forced fumble and two blocked field goals.

A Texas native, Green graduated with a liberal studies degree in Dec. 2016.
