NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore says his office is formally charging LSU running back Jeremy Hill and another man with misdemeanor simple battery in connection with a late-April scuffle in a bar parking lot.
Moore says Hill and Robert Bayardo, who is not an LSU student, are being charged Monday and will be arraigned on Friday.
The matter has put Hill's 2013 season in doubt because LSU's leading rusher last season is already on probation stemming from his 2012 plea of misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
Moore says Hill's probationary status likely will not be reviewed by the court for possible revocation until the charges have been resolved.
LSU coach Les Miles has suspended Hill pending the outcome of the case.
