Jeremy Hill, the 2012 leading rusher for LSU who was caught on video sucker punching a guy in the back of the head outside of a bar, will not face jail time, but will have to perform 40 hours of community service according to WAFB. Hill was already on probation when he plead guilty to simple battery last month after the fight.
LSU coach Les Miles has said that Hill would remain suspended while the legal process played out, but now that Hill has been cleared of jail time, Miles will have a tough decision to make regarding the return of Hill to the team.
Update: Hill has been reinstated after a unanimous team vote. Of course.
Coach Miles: The team voted to allow Jeremy Hill back, and he practiced this afternoon.
