Former LSU football player Charles Scott arrested

Former LSU football player Charles Scott was arrested early Sunday in the rape of an 18-year-old woman at his Prairieville home, according to an Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Deputies went to Scott’s home, at 36604 Plantation Court Blvd., about 4 a.m. after someone reported a disturbance at the house, said Ascension Parish Chief Deputy Tony Bacala.

While early details were sketchy, Bacala said that deputies learned that the disturbance at the house was “a result of an 18 year old alleging she was raped by Charles Edward Scott Jr.”

Deputies obtained a warrant for Scott at 12:30 p.m., Bacala said. Scott, 23, had been detained since the rape was reported and was immediately arrested, Bacala said.

Scott was booked into Ascension Parish jail on one count of simple rape. Bail has not been set.
