LSU’s leading RB arrested for battery

LSU Football Spring Game AP

One week removed from a standout performance during LSU’s spring game, running back Jeremy Hill is standing out again for the wrong reasons.

According to NBC 33 in Baton Rouge, Hill (pictured, No. 33) was arrested for battery Friday night after an incident at a local bar. Though details of exactly what happened are still few and far between, outlets are saying Hill was released on $500 bond.

LSU has not commented on the incident yet and Tigers coach Les Miles is currently in New York serving as an analyst for this year’s NFL draft coverage.

“Coach Miles is on his way back to Baton Ruge to find out exactly what happened,” LSU said via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “Until he has a chance to visit with Jeremy, he’s going to reserve comment.”

This is not Hill’s first time in legal trouble, either. He was arrested in 2011 on charges of oral sexual battery and later pleaded guilty to carnal knowledge of a juvenile, a misdemeanor.

As a freshman in 2012, Hill led all rushers with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    To tell young college athletes to stay away from bars is useless I know, but it would be to their benefit. Many other young men are jealous of their notoriety and want to challenge them in some way. Bravado is often evident.

    A $500 bond is the smallest one possible. It likely was not a big matter, maybe just a squabble. But I sure wish these superb athletes would realize they are targets and at the same time are role models for many young children, especially those in their home neighborhoods and towns.

    Though this is sad, it likely will go away soon, since it is a minor charge indicated by the minimum bond.

    Usual slap on the wrist coming. He’ll be suspended from breakfast for one day. That’ll teach him.

    @mrlaloosh:

    I think he will lose his “tea and crumpets” with the Queen.

    Don’t tell me they will make him miss the “most important meal of the day?!” Don’t get in the way of my shrimp and grits!

    Just another ignorant piece of shit masquerading as a student/athlete.

    I have an Airborne Ranger Army buddy who used to say he wished some punk would try something like this with him. I’d love to see the outcome. One mangled football player. Perhps that’s what these idiots need – to get the crap kicked out them but good one time.

    If your out at a bar and some knucklehead is challenging you walk away. I have no doubt this kid was getting harassed and reached his breaking point but with so much on the line you just gotta walk away its not worth it especially with one strike already.

    Oral sexual battery? Now this. Don’t worry LSU fans, he’ll start week 1, unless you’re playing the usual cupcake, then they’ll suspend him.

    People people people… don’t act like there aren’t guys like this on about EVERY NCAA football team.

    He’s acting like an immature jerk and punk… but not a remote ‘LSU’ problem… its a people problem… on every team… everywhere.

    The difference is how it’s handled… Mile isn’t a push over and will do the right thing after all details are weighed.

    LSU’s PR director is an embarrassment and should be replaced by someone who can keep this stuff out of the media.

    I was not familiar with “oral sexual battery”. It sounds like forced oral sex which is considered rape in most states. So he was charged with orally raping a juvenile and entered a plea deal. Classy.

    §43.3. Oral sexual battery
    A. Oral sexual battery is the intentional engaging in any of the following acts with another person, who is not the spouse of the offender when the other person has not yet attained fifteen years of age and is at least three years younger than the offender:
    (1) The touching of the anus or genitals of the victim by the offender using the mouth or tongue of the offender; or
    (2) The touching of the anus or genitals of the offender by the victim using the mouth or tongue of the victim.
    B. Lack of knowledge of the victim’s age shall not be a defense.
    C.
    (1) Whoever commits the crime of oral sexual battery shall be punished by imprisonment, with or without hard labor, without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence, for not more than ten years.
    (2) Whoever commits the crime of oral sexual battery on a victim under the age of thirteen years when the offender is seventeen years of age or older, shall be punished by imprisonment at hard labor for not less than twenty-five years nor more than life imprisonment. At least twenty-five years of the sentence imposed shall be served without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence.
    (3) Upon completion of the term of imprisonment imposed in accordance with Paragraph (2) of this Subsection, the offender shall be monitored by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections through the use of electronic monitoring equipment for the remainder of his natural life.
    (4) Unless it is determined by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections, pursuant to rules adopted in accordance with the provisions of this Subsection, that a sexual offender is unable to pay all or any portion of such costs, each sexual offender to be electronically monitored shall pay the cost of such monitoring.
    (5) The costs attributable to the electronic monitoring of an offender who has been determined unable to pay shall be borne by the department if, and only to the degree that sufficient funds are made available for such purpose whether by appropriation of state funds or from any other source. (6) The Department of Public Safety and Corrections shall develop, adopt, and promulgate rules in the manner provided in the Administrative Procedure Act, that provide for the payment of such costs. Such rules shall contain specific guidelines which shall be used to determine the ability of the offender to pay the required costs and shall establish the reasonable costs to be charged. Such rules may provide for a sliding scale of payment so that an offender who is able to pay a portion, but not all, of such costs may be required to pay such portion.
