More details have been released in the arrest of LSU running back Jeremy Hill.

The incident occurred in the early morning on Saturday, April 27 at Reggie’s Bar in Tigerland. The Baton Rouge Police Department was called to the scene at roughly 2:15 a.m.

NBC33 News has obtained a police report detailing the incident.

It says Hill and another suspect were quote "giving each other high fives and flaunting" while the victim laid unconscious on the ground.

The report says police saw cell phone video that clearly shows the victim attacked from behind by both Hill and the suspect.

By the time officers arrived on scene, Hill and the second suspect were no longer at the bar. They then located Hill and placed him under arrest. He was charged with Simple Battery.

The second suspect is unknown at this time.  

Hill has been indefinitely suspended from the football team for his involvement in the incident, announced head coach Les Miles. Miles said he will let this incident play out through the legal system before making any additional comments.

Hill is currently a sophomore at LSU and is a Baton Rouge-native. He has entered the 2013 season “as one of the best players at his position in college football.”

How does Miles come up with all these thugs to put on the team, does he go and get a copy of their arrest records from the police to see if they qualify for the team? There should be some guide lines put in place for the players to follow about going to bars and staying out of trouble, if its not fighting drunk , its doing durgs, its hard to be a national champion without key players on the team and for some reason LSU just cant keep the players noses clean long enough to make happen.

I wonder how fast the "wheels of justice" will turn for this LSU football player?
