The leading returning rusher for LSU’s football team is now on indefinite suspension. Following an arrest for simple battery over the weekend, it was announced today that Jeremy Hill would be barred from the Tiger program. According to the school’s statement, head coach Les Miles will “let the incident play out through the legal system before making additional comments.”
Hill was charged with taking part in the beating of another student at a Baton Rouge bar. Reportedly there is video of the incident showing Hill and another man beating the student to the point of unconsciousness.
If Hill is convicted of the simple battery charge, he would be in violation of a probation stemming from his guilty plea on a “carnal knowledge of a juvenile” charge in 2011.
As a freshman last season, Hill rushed for 755 yards on 142 carries with 12 touchdowns.
