Some unfortunate news came out of Baton Rouge over the weekend, as LSU running back Jeremy Hill was arrested early Saturday morning after being involved in an altercation outside a bar near the school's campus.

The school announced on Monday that Hill has been suspended indefinitely.

Hill, who is on probation stemming from a previous arrest in 2011, allegedly punched a man on the side of the head. Baton Rouge police responded to a 2:15 a.m. call regarding a man who said he was knocked out in a fight. A witness happened to record the encounter with his phone, and police say the recording showed a man who appears to be Hill punching the victim. A second suspect knocked the victim to the ground, but has not been identified.

As a freshman in 2012, Hill was LSU's leading rusher with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns. Hill's prior arrest came in early 2011 for an alleged sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl; he plead guilty to a misdemeanor and delayed his enrollment at LSU until last fall.

Hill was also the Tigers' leading rusher in the team's spring game on April 20. He tallied 102 rushing yards on 13 carries.
