Footage of LSU running back Jeremy Hill hitting a man outside of bar was nothing more than a “suckerpunch.” Hill, apparently proud of the cowardly act, celebrates by giving high fives. Hill recently plead guilty to his role in the fight.
Hill entered the plea Friday in state district court in Baton Rouge. He will not have to go to jail for the fight, but he faces the possible revocation of the probation he was granted following a January 2012 guilty plea to a misdemeanor stemming from his sexual relationship with a then-14-year-old girl at his high school.
District Attorney Hillar Moore said it will be up to a judge to decide whether Hill should serve the suspended six-month sentence in that earlier case.
Jeremy Hill could potentially turn into another example of an athlete with a world of talent, who wastes it due to immaturity and poor judgement. His future status with LSU has yet to be determined.
