BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)–The son of a former NFL player bonded out of a jail on Wednesday. Walter ‘Andrew’ Brister IV, better known as Andrew, turned himself in to police for a deadly hit-and-run on Saturday.

On Saturday night, 44-year-old father Jude Jarreau was killed during a hit-and-run on Ben Hur Rd.

On Wednesday, 21-year-old Louisiana Tech student and former Neville High football player Andrew Brister, turned himself in for the hit-and-run. Baton Rouge Police say they believe Brister was driving a Range Rover that struck and killed Jarreau.

“When Mr. Brister found out Sunday morning that somebody had been hit and it was a car that matched his description, he immediately called his father who then got ahold of me,” said Attorney John McLindon.

Brister’s attorney says Brister did not know he was the one responsible until the next day. He says they could not surrender Monday because of the holiday.

“When I was coordinating with the officers and myself, the earliest we could do it was Wednesday morning,” said McLindon.

Attorney John McLondin says Brister has never been in trouble before. The attorney could not reveal any more details like where Brister was before the hit-and-run and if he was drinking. Baton Rouge Police say this case was expedited thanks to help from the community.

“People stayed, people gave information on the vehicle type to officers as they arrived on scene. Additionally, to Crime Stopper tips that were called in,” said Don Coppola Jr., spokesperson for the Baton Rouge Police Department.

The family of Jarreau describes him as a huge LSU fan and a loving father of two. The family is not comfortable with interviews at this moment.

“It’s obviously a terrible tragedy and I’m sure it’s extremely hard on the Jarreau family and no question on that. It’s been very hard on the Brister family. Our thoughts and prayers are definitely with the Jarreaus,” said McLindon.

Brister’s bond was set to $10,000. If Brister were to be convicted, he could face up to 10 years behind bars and a fine of $5,000.

Brister is facing a charge of felony hit-and-run.
