Nola.com is reporting that LSU defensive back Jalen Mills has been arrested for second degree battery. According to the report, Mills reportedly punched a female victim in the mouth last month at his Highland Road apartment complex.
she was at Mills’ apartment complex when she knocked on Mills’ door looking for her friend. Mills opened the door then closed it in the victim’s face so she knocked again. When no one came to the door the victim walked away down the hall. She stated she heard someone say something to her while walking away and when she turned around Mills punched her in the mouth. She fell to the pavement and was unconscious briefly, according to the report. The victim required 4 stitches in her lip as a result of the attack.
Mills has been suspended from the team indefinitely by coach Les Miles, LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette said.
