Flau’jae Johnson brother arrested: LSU star’s sibling jumped onto court during fight with South Carolina

Flau’jae Johnson’s brother was arrested after he jumped onto the court during the SEC championship game fracas between LSU and South Carolina.

Trayron Lenorris Milton, 24, leapt over the barrier wall and jumped over the scoring table to reach the court, where LSU and South Carolina players were in a heated back-and-forth.

The situation began when LSU’s Johnson was called for a foul on South Carolina’s Milaysia Fulwiley. Johnson held onto Fulwiley to slow her down on what appeared to be a breakaway.

After the play, Johnson shoved South Carolina’s Ashlyn Watkins. Gamecocks senior Kamilla Cardoso responded by pushing Johnson to the floor.

The shove prompted Johnson’s older brother Milton to charge the court. He was immediately surrounded by security and was taken off the court in handcuffs. Here’s the latest on his arrest.
