LSU Tigers safety Jalen Mills was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested on a battery charge on June 11. 

Mills allegedly punched a female in the mouth in the battery incident last month, per The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Jim Kleinpeter

"LSU sophomore defensive back Jalen Mills was arrested Tuesday night for second degree battery, Baton Rouge Police confirmed Wednesday. Mills reportedly punched a female victim in the mouth last month at his Highland Road apartment complex. 

"Mills, 20, turned himself in to BRPD at the LSU campus police station at about 10 p.m. Tuesday and was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison about 2 a.m. Wednesday, a prison spokesman said. He was released at about 4 p.m. Wednesday after posting a $10,000 bond with the stipulation he not contact the victim. The bail was originally set at $7,000 but raised, the spokesman said. 

"LSU coach Les Miles has suspended Mills indefinitely, according to a press release issued by LSU sports information. Miles declined to comment further until the incident has gone through the legal system, the release said.

"It was the sixth arrest involving an LSU football player in the past year. Running back Jeryl Brazil was arrested three times before being dismissed in November while defensive back Kavahra Holmes and defensive lineman Frank Herron were also arrested. Holmes left the team in December and transferred to Southeastern Louisiana and Herron remains on the roster. 

"LSU has had nine football players arrested in the past four years, according to an unofficial count last year by NOLA.com|The Times-Picayune. LSU was in the bottom half of the SEC in that category at the time. 

"The victim told police she was looking for a friend of hers and knocked on Mills' apartment door May 4 at approximately 1 a.m., BRPD spokesman Corp. Don Coppola, Jr. said. Mills opened the door and then closed it in her face so she knocked again. She walked away but said she heard someone say something behind her and when she turned around, Mills punched her in the mouth.

"The victim said she fell to the pavement and was briefly knocked unconscious, Coppola said. She also suffered a laceration to her lip that required four stitches. 

"Mills, a native of DeSoto, Texas, was identified in a six-person lineup by the victim and a witness, who corroborated the victim's statement. Mills is listed on the LSU roster at 6 feet and 195 pounds. The victim is 5-3 and 113 pounds according to the warrant."

According to WBRZ.com of Baton Rouge, La., investigators tried to contact Mills on May 29, but the LSU safety said he was in Houston and won't be back until June 9 -- the beginning of summer school. They scheduled a June 10 meeting with him and event sent him a reminder. When he didn't respond, detectives were able to secure an arrest warrant. 

The same report includes an interview with Mills' friend Nicholas Anderson, who said Mills is not the type of player who would strike a person, much less a smaller woman. He said,"He's a real outspoken person, like he cares about others, gives back to the community, he cares about his career and his demeanor, so I don't think he would risk all that to hit a female."

Mills initially started his NCAA career at cornerback, but switched to safety late last season. He has started all 26 games he's played in and recorded 67 tackles and three interceptions -- tied for the team lead -- in the 2013 season. Mills was a Freshman All-America two seasons ago, per Kleinpeter.

Aug 31 2014 12:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In a true tale of two halves, the LSU Tigers came from behind and defeated the Wisconsin Badgers by a score of 28-24.  It was shocking early on as to how dominating the Badgers' rush attack truly was. Wisconsin finished the first half with nearly 200 yards on the ground. It was the first time in over a decade in which an LSU team has relinquished that many yards in one half.  However, the tide turned on the fake punt call by Les Miles. LSU got the momentum ...

It may not seem like it, but LSU has position battles outside of quarterback. LSU's biggest offseason storyline has centered around the successor to gunslinger Zach Mettenberger. Freshman Brandon Harris and sophomore Anthony Jennings have been vying for that title. So far, Harris and Jennings have split time with the first unit. LSU's depth chart is far from being set in stone. Head coach Les Miles has always been patient when making decisions on positions in question before the sea ...
