LSU RB Jeremy Hill Given New Probation Conditions
Jeremy Hill, LSU’s leading rusher a season ago, has been given new probation conditions. Hill was arrested 10 days ago for misdemeanor simple battery after video captured him striking another man in the side of the head.
A Baton Rouge judge ordered Hill, 20, to a strict curfew. Hill will not be allowed outside of his residence from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. He also must attend substance abuse evaluation and seek any recommended treatment.
Hill’s arrest two weeks ago violated his current two-year probation he received by pleading guilty to misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
According to various reports, Hill struck the victim after being heckled. Among the things he was being heckled for was his sexual relationship with a 14-year old when he was an 18-year old senior in high school. That relationship led to his misdemeanor carnal knowledge charge.
LSU head coach Les Miles suspended Hill indefinitely after his recent arrest. Hill’s fate with the Tigers will depend largely on how his current case plays out in the legal system.
