Brother of LSU’s Flau’jae Johnson Arrested for On-Court Confrontation

The brother of LSU women’s basketball star Flau’jae Johnson has been arrested after he ran onto the court during an altercation between the Tigers and South Carolina during the SEC tournament final on Sunday. 

Trayron Lenorris Milton, Johnson’s older brother, was arrested, booked and charged on a count of disorderly conduct and assault and battery in the third degree after he jumped over the barrier from the fan section and the scorer’s table to intervene in a skirmish, according to The State.  

“While Milton was jumping over the barrier, the victim was sitting at the scorer’s table at the edge of the court,” the Greenville Police Department said in a press release, per The State. “To get over the table, Milton came from behind the table, pushed down on the victim’s head, and stepped on her shoulders to jump over.”

The incident occurred with just over two minutes to go between the SEC powerhouses when Johnson could be seen elbowing South Carolina’s Ashlyn Watkins during a stoppage in play. After the contact from Johnson, Gamecocks center Kamilla Cardoso shoved Johnson to the ground, causing benches to clear and sparking a larger shoving match. Seeing this, Milton jumped over the scorer’s table and inserted himself into the confrontation. 

Milton made brief contact with Cardoso before he was escorted off the court. Referees went on to eject six players (four from South Carolina and two from LSU), and the No. 1 Gamecocks won, 79–72. 

According to online jail records, Milton was booked at the Greenville County Adult Detention Center on Sunday. It’s unclear whether he’s posted bond as of early Monday afternoon.
