BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

After an off-campus incident where LSU running back Jeremy Hill was arrested on a simple battery charge, head coach Les Miles has suspended him indefinitely.

Miles said he will let this incident play out through the legal system before making any additional comments.

BRPD says Hill was arrested on the simple battery charge early Saturday morning

Police were called to Reggie's Bar in Tigerland around 2:15 a.m. in reference to a fight, according to an affidavit of probable cause released by authorities.

According to the document, the unidentified 20-year-old victim told officers Hill hit him in the head numerous times. It also stated officers were shown a video of the incident that "clearly shows the defendant striking the victim." 

A second unidentified suspect allegedly then hit the victim and knocked him unconscious, according to BRPD spokesman Cpl. L'Jean Mckneely. That suspect was not caught by police. 

Hill left the scene before police arrived but was later arrested, Mckneely added. Hill was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and posted a $500 bond.

LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette said head football coach Les Miles is aware of the incident, but will not have any comment until he returns from the NFL Draft and has a chance to review the police report and speak with Hill. 

Investigators ask anyone with information on the incident, including the identity of the second suspect, to call BRPD at 389-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP. 

Hill, 20, was arrested on Jan. 12, 2011 on a charge of oral sexual battery. He pleaded guilty in Jan. 2012 to carnal knowledge of a juvenile, which is a misdemeanor.

The judge sentenced Hill to two years probation.
