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.
