The LSU Tigers lit more cigars than the 1996 Bulls after winning the national championship. While the celebratory stogies were more than deserved, one Debby Downer deputy tried to rain on the Tigers' parade.
After beating Clemson on Monday night, the party continued to rage into early Tuesday morning. Throughout the locker room celebration, players chain-smoked cigars.
This led an officer to try to step in and inform the team of the building's smoking policies.
"A police officer threw water on the party when telling the national champions they could not smoke the cigars," Alabama Online reports. "The officer announced to the players any smoking cigars in the locker room would be subject to arrest."
This threat didn't faze the LSU players. In fact, they laughed in the officer's face after hearing the warning. The officer, on the other hand, was not smiling. He insisted he was fine with the partying but his commander ordered him to tell them the smoking had to stop. It's unclear if this deterred them from lighting up again, but the celebration continued after he left.
LSU has a lot to be excigted about. The Tigers went 15-0, beating eight top 10 teams en route to winning the national championship. They also handed Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence the first loss of his collegiate career. While LSU's Heisman Trophy–winning quarterback Joe Burrow got a lot of deserved attention, he was also surrounded by an amazing receiving core. As a result, former LSU standout Odell Beckham Jr. decided to thank some of the wide outs by handing out fists full of fake cash.
