BATON ROUGE - Suspended LSU football player Jalen Mills pleaded not guilty during formal arraignment today on battery charges from an incident this summer.

Mills was not at court, and his attorney entered the plea on his behalf.

Mills faces simple battery charges after witnesses said he punched a woman at his apartment complex on May 4, knocking her out. His attorney contests that story, claiming Mills' girlfriend was the one who actually hit the woman.

Head coach Les Miles suspended Mills from the team after the arrest. Mills was reinstated after his charges were reduced from felony battery to a misdemeanor.

A date for a status conference in the case was set for Jan. 27.
