LSU guard Flau'jae Johnson's brother was arrested and booked into a Greenville County jail Sunday evening after jumping onto the court during an altercation in the Tigers' SEC Tournament Championship Game against South Carolina. 

Johnson's older brother was charged with a count of disorderly conduct and assault and battery in the third degree.

According to the Baton Rouge Advocate: "Police in Greenville, South Carolina, say Milton was arrested after he jumped over the barrier wall and scorer's table by shoving an SEC employee in the head and stepping on her shoulders to get on the court, The Post and Courier reported."

Johnson's brother, Trayron Lenorris Milton, jumped over the scorers table on Sunday after Johnson got in an altercation with South Carolina'a Kamilla Cardoso.

Milton bumped into Cardoso before security quickly rushed him off of the floor.

The skirmish resulted in a 20-minute delay in the title game after both benches were ejected from the contest. Along with both benches being thrown out of the game, Cardoso was also sent back to the locker room.

As a result, both teams finished the game with zero players left on the bench for the final 2:08 of the SEC Championship Game. 

Angel Reese spoke on the altercation following Sunday's showdown:

“I’ve never been a part of a game like that. But of course, you know, two heavy hitters, we are going to battle. We’re not scared of them. They’re not scared of us. We came in and knew what we had. They came in and knew what they had. And it turned up and went ways that we didn’t want it to go. But I’m proud of this team. We fought. We fought. We fought with five maybe six healthy players, If that. “Just know we’re not scared and we’re at a place right now that I’m proud of and I’m happy to be where we are right now.”

Here's what Kim Mulkey said of Sunday's fight:

“Well let me say this, do you realize there was only one foul called on each team with two minutes to play in the fourth quarter, are you kidding me? That might have created some of that. Not the way we play we’re gonna foul your ass. But you only blew that whistle one time? Flau’Jae from what I saw intentionally fouled Fulwiley because she stripped her great move because she’s gonna get a layup right there and then some jawing went on with her and another player and then the next thing I know Cardosa came in way later. 

"I ran because somebody came out of the stands. I think it was Flau’Jae’s brother trying to keep him from doing anything crazy. Obviously they saw it on film and said everybody had to go and then I think one player for South Carolina didn’t leave the bench. It’s ugly. It’s not good. No one wants to be a part of that. No one wants to see that ugliness But I can tell you this I wish she would have pushed Angel Reese. You’re six-eight. Don’t push somebody that little. That was uncalled for in my opinion. Let those two girls that were jawing let them go at it.”
