LSU back arrested

LSU leading running back Jeremy Hill, already on probation in connection with a 2011 arrest, was arrested again early Saturday morning after allegedly punching another man in the side of the head outside a Baton Rouge bar near campus.

Hill, who pleaded guilty in January 2012 to misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile, is now charged with simple battery, also a misdemeanor, East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hiller Moore said.

LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette said coach Les Miles was at the NFL Draft in New York on Saturday and would not comment until he returned to Baton Rouge and spoke with Hill. Miles was due to fly home on Saturday night.

Hill, 20, was LSU's leading rusher with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012, his freshman season.

Nina Villanueva’s RBI double in the bottom of the seventh inning, completed UTA’s sweep of Utah State with three straight 1-0 walk-off wins. Starting pitcher Teri Lyles (19-10) gave up only three hits in seven innings for the victory for the Mavericks (21-24, 6-12 WAC).
