It appears Odell Beckham Jr.'s wild night following LSU's national championship victory won't land him in any trouble with the New Orleans Police Department after all.
On Thursday, the NOPD issued an arrest warrant for the former Giants wide receiver, accusing the wide receiver of simple battery on a police officer after he was caught spanking a member of the department in the LSU locker room following the game.
But ESPN reports that the officer has signed an affidavit saying that he does not want to pursue charges. The arrest warrant could be withdrawn as early as this weekend.
Video of the alleged incident can be seen below.

The Cleveland Browns issued a statement about the incident on Thursday morning: "We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter. They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation."
Meanwhile, Beckham is still in less serious trouble for handing out cash to LSU players after the game. LSU first claimed the money was fake. Hours later, the university issued a statement that it was "apparent cash" and said it was "in contact with the NCAA and the SEC" because "some of our student-athletes may have been placed in a compromising position."
