Jeremy Hill, the suspended LSU sophomore running back, has plead guilty to simple battery. Hill, who was already on probation for forcing a 14-year-old to perform oral sex on him, was involved in a fight outside a Baton Rouge bar in April and was caught on video punching a man in the back of the head and then celebrating with high-fives for those around him. As you can see, it’s just as bad as it sounds.
Hill was given two years supervised probation and fined $375 for the victim’s medical bills by Judge Mike Irwin.
“I have been advised by the University Registrar that Mr. Hill is on file as having exercised (the) opt out right,” Miriam Segar, an associate athletic director at LSU, wrote to The Advocate in response to a records request. “LSU is not authorized under federal law to disclose any record.”
LSU coach Les Miles suspended Hill following the incident and has been waiting for the judicial process to play out, but now that Hill has plead guilty it’s hard to imagine Miles justifying his return.
