(AP) The district attorney in Baton Rouge says a woman who had said LSU receiver Drake Davis physically and psychologically abused her has changed her statement. 

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore also stresses that it's common for someone involved in a domestic violence case to change their statements following an arrest and that the case against Davis is proceeding.

Moore says the women's changed statement has ''no effect on the facts in the case.'' Evidence collected by police includes photos of bruises and a threatening text message. 

The 6-foot-4 Davis is suspended from the football team indefinitely. He was arrested Friday night and is now free on $5,000 bond.

A judge Monday gave Davis a 10 p.m. curfew and said he must check in with authorities several days. He was also told not to contact the alleged victim.

Davis is a junior. Last season, he played in 13 games and caught three passes, two of which went for touchdowns of 36 and 87 yards.
