LSU head coach Les Miles announced Monday his team has voted to reinstate Jeremy Hill, who had his probation extended by a judge earlier in the day.

"He had an episode that let us down," Miles said in a press conference. "I wanted [the team] to have a right to express their opinion in a vote."

Hill, 20, was arrested for punching a 20-year-old man outside a bar in April, after which LSU suspended him indefinitely. Hill pleaded guilty to a charge of simple battery in July. Hill had already been on probation after pleading guilty in 2012 to carnal knowledge of a juvenile, a misdemeanor, following an incident in 2010, when Hill and another man were arrested for engaging in a sexual act with a 14-year-old girl in a high school locker room.

LSU will operate under a zero-tolerance policy with Hill, last year's leading rusher. He will be a sophomore this season.
