Trey Holly, a running back for the LSU Tigers football program, is claiming that he’s innocent following his arrest after a shooting that took place in Union Parish. He made the claim on social media Saturday.

Taking to X, Holly says that he was “falsely identified, accused, and arrested,” and he’s “100% innocent.”

Placed under arrest Thursday, following a Feb. 9 shooting in which a woman and man were shot in Farmerville — the woman was shot in the back and the man shot in the leg, according to the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office, per WAFB.

Holly is facing three felony charges: attempted second-degree murder, aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of a weapon. His bond is set at $510,000, per the outlet.

In light of the arrest, LSU issued a statement, per WAFB, that read:

“We are aware that a student-athlete has been arrested in relation to a shooting in Union Parish. This student-athlete has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities, in accordance with departmental policies. Out of respect for the judicial process, we will have no further comment.”

In other news in the sports world that got a little testy, New York Jets running back Breece Hall was almost involved in an airplane brawl after a fan approached him looking for an autograph — Hall declined.

Things went down last Sunday at Newark Airport when Hall returned from Las Vegas after Super Bowl Week.

Here’s the video of the incident:

No one has been arrested.
