LSU Running Back Jeremy Hill Gets Tougher Probation — Still Suspended Indefinitely From Team
LSU footballs sophomore running back Jeremy Hill has been in the news a lot lately but not for great things he has done on the football field.
Hill was arrested on April 27th outside of a bar for punching a man in the side of the head. Jeremy Hill met with a District Judge in Baton Rouge yesterday and she imposed a stiffer probation on the running back.
Hill already was on probation from a past plea deal when he was arrested and booked with misdemeanor simple battery early on April 27, shortly after police received a mobile phone video that showed Hill punching another man in the side of the head.
Under new conditions set by state District Judge Bonnie Jackson, Hill must stay out of bars and adhere to a 9 p.m.-to-6 a.m curfew. He also must receive a substance abuse evaluation and seek any recommended treatment.
LSU coach Les Miles has indefinitely suspended Hill, who is free on bond. Miles has said he does not intend to comment further on Hill's long-term future with the Tigers until after the legal resolution of the matter.
Hill who is only 20 years old was LSU's leading rusher with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, which was his freshman season.
