Report: LSU starting DB Mills suspended indefinitely following battery charge

Jalen Mills

Time to hit the reset button on the “Days Without an Arrest” ticker once more. LSU defensive back Jalen Mills was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with second-degree battery according to a report by a Baton Rouge news station.

As reported by WAFB, Mills was booked on a second-degree battery charge. As a result, Mills has been indefinitely suspended by LSU, allowing for the legal process to play out for now before making any further judgements on his status on the roster.

According to the police report cited by WAFB, Mills is accused of punching a woman in the mouth at his apartment in early May. The police report says the woman claims to have fallen to the pavement and was briefly unconscious. A witness was able to confirm the details of the report to police. Mills was unavailable to talk to police after arrangements to talk about the incident this week. With Mills not making himself available to police, a warrant for his arrest was issued.

The details of the incident sure do seem ugly, but of course for now these are just accusations. there is no word on any court date at this time for the two-year starter at LSU. In the spring Mills moved from cornerback to safety.

    Wonder if Miles will have the team vote on a suspension again.

    What a waste…. if history has taught us anything… start for LSU on defense and there’s a decent shot you’ll get a phone call on draft day.

    Nobody is drafting a guy that punches girls in the mouth.

    Here we go, AGAIN…..with the athletes hitting women. Not even trying to call out a specific school or conference! This crap is just wrong!!! It makes NO sense! Some of these young idiots are just plain dumba$$es!

    Les Miles is noted for keeping Thugs on his team even if they have committed felonies (e.g. Hill and many others. Time to boot a thug Les. Eating Grass will not be an excuse for tolerance.

    A woman hitter doesn’t get drafted huh. Guess Lawrence Phillips wasn’t drafted then.

    Please when your school doesn’t have someone arrested give me a call…

    What if she hit him first and he responded, what if she egged it on, and started pushing and physically toughing him in a violent manner, what if what if.

    All the facts aren’t known so lets stop the retarded crap already. Yeah he probably needs to be kicked off but when was the last time a star athlete was kicked off a team just for punching someone? Every school would bring him back.

    As for the schedule swipe play Auburn, Bama, Florida Georgia, A&M every year and call me.

    @earz4lsu A bit sensitive there are we? And congrats on finding an example that happened 20 years ago, WELL before the age of twitter and instant info. Maybe he still gets drafted, but in today’s NFL he cost himself minimum of 3 rounds.

    And if you read the root article you would see the police report, it says “the victim said she was at the apartment complex and knocked on Mills’ door because she was looking for her friend. It stated Mills confronted the woman and closed the door in her face. It added she knocked again, but when no one answered, she walked away. The report went on to state that the woman claimed she heard someone say something and when she turned around, she was punched in the mouth.”

    The story was corroborated by a witness.

    “Mills was unavailable to talk to police after arrangements to talk about the incident this week. With Mills not making himself available to police, a warrant for his arrest was issued.”

    This one statement proves why so many think TPD tried to cover up a crime with Jameis Winston. In most states (unless your protected by the program) you are arrested and charged with said crime if you refuse to cooperate with an ongoing police investigation…
