Two counts of pornography involving juveniles have been added to the list of charges against former LSU football player.  

Former wide receiver Drake Davis is currently being held in jail without bond.

Arrest documents allege Davis received two text messages that investigators considered pornography involving children and Davis did not delete those texts.

On Aug. 17, 2018, Davis was arrested by LSU Police and accused of second-degree battery of a female. During that investigation, officers seized Davis’ cell phone as allowed by a search warrant. That phone was sent to the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office.

A search of his phone found two separate texts that were considered child pornography, the warrant says.

“This video consists of an African-American juvenile, possibly under the age of 10 years old, masturbating in a bathtub,” read the arrest report. “Mr. Davis never deleted this video from his text message history.”

Another text, containing a six second video, was sent to Davis on April 11, 2017 and also showed “read” by Davis, the warrant says.

Davis has been arrested twice before in the past two months on allegations that he physically assaulted a female.

LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said Wednesday, Davis is “suspended indefinitely from the team.”

“We are aware of the statement made by his attorney that he plans to withdraw but we have not received that paperwork yet,” Ballard said.

A bond hearing is set for Friday at 9 a.m. in Anderson’s office. District Attorney Hillar Moore confirmed the bond hearing will be for all of the charges against Davis.
