Officers were dispatched to an apartment after a complaint of a man attempting to force his way through a security gate. That man was later identified as former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson.

After a confrontation with a maintenance worker, Jefferson entered Mathieu's apartment.

When police arrived, they immediately smelled a strong oder of marijuana and obtained consent from Mathieu to search the apartment.
