Witness recalls Jeremy Hill fight

Related Story

BATON ROUGE - A patron at Reggie's Bar Friday night described the bar fight that landed 20-year-old LSU running back Jeremy Hill in jail to News 2 today.

"I didn't see who threw the first punch, I just know that, he was on the ground, the guy was on the ground," she said.

LSU head football coach Les Miles suspended Hill indefinitely from the team Monday.

Hill was arrested by Baton Rouge Police Saturday after a fight outside Reggie's Bar on Bob Pettit Drive. Police recovered video of Hill and another man hitting an unidentified victim in the head several times, knocking him unconscious.

"He was just having a good time, out with some of his friends," said the witness. "Wrong place, wrong time is basically what it boils down to."

Hill was booked on charges of simple battery and posted a $500 bail. He was also on probation after pleading guilty in 2012 to misdemeanor carnal knowledge.

His lawyer, Marci Blaize, says it's too early in the process to tell what action is next, but did say his probation followed strict guidelines.
