Oliver facing restraining order
BATON ROUGE, La. -- A family court hearing on a restraining order against LSU defensive tackle Melvin Oliver has been postponed until Aug. 3.
Bel Tyretta Leejay, the mother of Oliver's 8-month old son, received the restraining order June 29 after alleging that the 6-foot-3, 269-pound Oliver "has slapped me, threw me over the bathtub and beat me in the head with his fists in the past."
Oliver's Aug. 3 court date is five days before he is expected to report for football practice on Aug. 8.
