Mills arrested on battery charge
LSU released a statement to say Mills has been suspended indefinitely for his involvement in an off-field incident. The release also said Les Miles will have no further comment on the incident until it goes through the legal system.
According to the arrest warrant, Mills allegedly punched a female victim while at his apartment complex in May of this year. The victim knocked on Mills' door in search of a friend, and Mills responded by closing the door in her face. After knocking again to no response, the victim walked away down the wall.
She claims to hearing someone call her name, turned around and was punched in the mouth by Mills. The warrant states that she briefly went unconscious and required four stitches in her lip as a result of the attack.
Mills was served an arrest warrant Wednesday morning and has been charged with a single count of second degree battery. That offense carries a penalty of a maximum five years in prison and/or a fine of no more than $2,000.
After spending the majority of his two-year LSU career at corner, Mills transitioned to safety at the end of last season. He was expected to be the Tigers' starting free safety in 2014, and was also considered LSU's top nickel back as well.
