Flau’jae Johnson’s Brother Arrested After Jumping Onto Court

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

During the confrontation between members of the women’s Louisiana State University and University of South Carolina basketball teams, a spectator, the brother of one of the players involved, was arrested after jumping onto the basketball court to defend his sister.

According to Greenville News, the brother of LSU’s Flau’jae Johnson, identified as 24-year-old Trayron Milton, has been charged by the Greenville Police Department with assault and battery, third-degree, and disorderly conduct. Milton made his way to the court in the fourth quarter of the SEC (Southeastern Conference) Women’s Basketball Tournament Finals.

Greenville police stated that Milton made contact with an SEC employee’s head at the scorer’s table and was escorted from the venue by police officers at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
“To get over the table, Milton came from behind the table, pushed down on the victim’s head, and stepped on her shoulders to jump over,” GPD spokesperson Diana Munoz said. “Two other spectators jumped over the wall but did not reach the court because officers stopped them.”

The undefeated South Carlina Gamecocks won the contest 79-72, winning the SEC Women’s Basketball Championship. The team is expected to hold a number one slot for the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
