Patriots’ Kayshon Boutte Charged With Illegal Sports Betting

Jan 26, 2024

New England Patriots rookie and former LSU wide receiver Kayshon Boutte has been arrested in Louisiana for allegedly participating in illegal sports betting. WAFB in Baton Rouge broke the news after discovering a warrant issued for Boutte’s arrest.

Charges against Boutte include creating a fake account to bet while underage, gambling while still playing college football, and betting on LSU games, though a source told WAFB that Boutte never bet on his own actions in a game. Thousands of bets reaped “several hundred thousand dollars,” one source told WAFB.

Louisiana State Police say that an account they believe is linked to Boutte placed more than 8,900 bets between April 6, 2022, and May 7, 2023, and that at least 17 of those wagers were on NCAA football games, including at least six on LSU football. Investigators say they learned of the misconduct from an online gambling company in July.
