BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU has indefinitely suspended its leading running back, Jeremy Hill, following his weekend arrest in connection with an alleged bar fight near the campus.

Hill was already on probation after he pleaded guilty in January 2012 to misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile. Following the early Saturday incident, he was charged with simple battery, also a misdemeanor.

LSU coach Les Miles announced the suspension Monday in a brief emailed news release. He said he would let the case "play out through the legal system" before commenting further.

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