LSU star running back Leonard Fournette sat out for the first quarter of their game against the Florida Gators after getting into a physical scuffle with a Florida assistant coach.
Prior to kickoff, both teams began to get physical shoving each other on the sidelines during warm up. Most of the team was involved in the altercation, but towards the end of a video shot of the incident, Fournette is blatantly seen shoving an assistant coach.
Take a look at the video yourself:

Police even had to get involved to separate Fournette and the coach and eventually separate the two teams from hurting each other before the game even started.
It’s not very often you see a football player disrespect a coach like that and it seems even more peculiar when you can hear the coach saying he hadn’t said anything to be shoved in that manner.
