USC senior cornerback Josh Shaw has admitted to lying about how he suffered his ankle injuries last weekend and has been suspended indefinitely.
witnesses told police an individual matching Shaw's description was seen jumping off of a three-story balcony at the Orsini Apartments near USC's campus where Shaw's girlfriend lives.
Donald Etra, Shaw's lawyer, said on Wednesday night Shaw's injury was suffered while falling off the balcony at the Orsini Apartments on Saturday night.
"My understanding is that there is nothing criminal about this whatsoever," Etra told ESPNLA. "There is no criminal activity whatsoever."
Etra said he was hired by Shaw on Wednesday to give him advice. When asked why Shaw would need a criminal defense lawyer, Etra said, "Intelligent people hire lawyers."
