Miles said he will let this incident play out through the legal system before making any additional comments.
LSU running back Jeremy Hill suspended from team indefinitely after off-campus fight.
The incident occurred in the early morning on Saturday, April 27 at Reggie’s Bar in Tigerland. The Baton Rouge Police Department was called to the scene at roughly 2:15 a.m.
Officials say the entire incident was caught on video by a witness at the scene. We’re told Hill is clearly seen striking a 20-year-old man in the head with his fist. They say a second suspect is also shown striking the victim with his fist, which caused the victim to become unconscious.
By the time officers arrived on scene, Hill and the second suspect were no longer at the bar. They then located Hill and placed him under arrest. He was charged with Simple Battery.
The second suspect is unknown at this time.
Hill is currently a sophomore at LSU and is a Baton Rouge-native. He has entered the 2013 season “as one of the best players at his position in college football.”
