LSU’s Leading Rusher May Return to Team After Legal Troubles in Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A judge has extended LSU running back Jeremy Hill’s probation and now it’s up to coach Les Miles whether the Tigers’ suspended leading rusher last season will return to the team.

Hill was caught on video punching a man outside a bar last spring. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery — a violation of his probation from an earlier misdemeanor.

During Monday’s hearing, State District Judge Bonnie Jackson reviewed more restrictive terms she attached to Hill’s first probation — including a curfew and bar ban — in May. Jackson sentenced Hill to 40 hours of community service on Monday and agreed to curfew flexibility when Hill needs to be out at night for football games, travel.

Miles had said he wouldn’t address Hill’s reinstatement until his legal status was clear.
