BATON ROUGE -- Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson pleaded no contest to a charge stemming from a brawl outside a bar near campus in 2011, according to WAFB.

Jefferson, who had been ordered to report to jail Tuesday for a parole violation, was fined $100 and sentenced to perform 30 hours of community service and will be released from jail.

Among the conditions set by District Judge Chip Moore, Jefferson will be randomly drug tested and be required to give talks to kids to encourage them to stay in school, said a report from WAFB.

Moore revoked Jefferson’s bond for his 2011 simple battery case and ordered him to jail Tuesday after he was arrested last week on a marijuana charge.  Jefferson was arrested along with former LSU players Tyrann Mathieu, Derrick Bryant and Karnell Hatcher at Mathieu’s Baton Rouge apartment, where police said they found marijuana. Police were called to the apartment following a complaint.

"This opened my eyes to a lot of things," Jefferson said to WAFB. "Made me aware of a lot of things."

A grand jury charged Jefferson with simple battery on Sept. 29, 2011 in connection with a fight outside Shady's Bar on Aug. 19, 2011.

Moore ordered that Jefferson be arraigned Dec. 12 on the drug charge.
