BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Freshman LSU running back Jeryl Brazil is once again in trouble with the law, but this time it is for being connected to a burglary in the Baton Rouge area.

The Baton Rouge Police Department has issued a warrant for Brazil's arrest. He's wanted for Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling. It's considered a felony.

According to the arrest report, Brazil is accused of breaking into an apartment on November 23, 2013 around 6 a.m. and stealing $47. The report says the victim's girlfriend woke up to find Brazil leaving the apartment. Surveillance video was examined, and the warrant states that Brazil was seen entering and leaving the apartment.

During the investigation, the victim identified Brazil as the person who broke into the apartment and told investigators that Brazil and other friends were at the apartment the night before. The victim showed a photo from the night before, and Brazil was wearing the same clothing the next night when he is accused of breaking into the apartment.

The charge of simple burglary is a felony and carries a punishment of no more than $2,000 and no more than 12 years in prison.

Brazil was suspended indefinitely from the football team after being arrested in October for battery and damaging a woman's apartment.

The victim told LSU Police that in October Brazil came to her apartment upset, and that she and other friends attempted to calm him down.  She told officers that Brazil grabbed her by the neck, shoved her onto a sofa, and punched a hole in the wall before leaving.

Brazil was issued a misdemeanor summons for simple criminal damage to property and simple battery for the most recent incident.

The Loranger-native was issued a misdemeanor summons in September for an alleged fight that happened outside an on-campus dining hall. During that incident, Brazil was disciplined internally and that he did not play in the football game against Kent State. 

A tweet from LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette says Brazil was never reinstated to the team from his previous suspension and that he is no longer with the program.

Brazil has 2 carries for 10 yards on the season.
