Oliver facing restraining order

7/20/2004 - LSU Tigers

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.
