BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux has been suspended from the football team indefinitely after he was cited for trying to illegally get on a riverboat casino in Baton Rouge.
LSU's sports information director, Michael Bonnette, says the 20-year-old Perrilloux was issued a misdemeanor summons by police after allegedly trying to use his older brother's driving license to enter the Hollywood Casino.
Baton Rouge Police Corporal L'Jean McKneely says Perrilloux was cited for one count of misrepresentation to gain access and released.
Police were called to the casino about 5 pm Saturday by the boat's security guards. The minimum age to board a riverboat casino in Louisiana is 21.
Bonnette said Perrilloux could return to the team at Coach Les Miles' discretion.
Perrilloux was 1 of the top football recruits in the country in 2004. At the time of his suspension he was listed as the Number Two quarterback by LSU behind Matt Flynn.
