Baton Rouge, LA (Sports Network) - LSU has suspended running back Jeremy Hill
indefinitely following an arrest for an off-campus altercation this past
Hill, a rising sophomore who led the Tigers with 755 rushing yards and 12
touchdowns as a true freshman last season, was charged with simple battery
after an incident at a bar near the university early Saturday morning. Citing
an affidavit of probable cause, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported a 20-
year-old victim told police he was struck in the head several times and lost
consciousness. The newspaper stated that Hill and another unidentified man
were caught on video striking the victim.
According to the Times-Picayune, Hill was already on probation for a previous
offense, having pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of carnal knowledge of a
juvenile in January of 2011.
A statement released by LSU's sports information office on Monday said head
coach Les Miles will allow the incident to play through the legal system
before making any further comments on the matter.
