LSU junior defensive back Jalen Mills was arrested and charged with second-degree battery, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday.
The Baton Rouge Police confirmed that Mills allegedly punched a woman in the mouth at the door of his apartment on May 4. The victim told police she was briefly unconscious and required several stitches on her lip and later identified Mills in a police lineup.
LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette told WAFB in Baton Rouge that Mills has been indefinitely suspended from the team.
Police contacted Mills by phone May 29 but were told he would not be back in Baton Rouge. An appointment to meet with police was made for Tuesday, but when Mills neither showed nor responded to further calls, the arrest warrant was issued.
Mills is a two-year starter who earned freshman All-American honors as a cornerback in 2012 before moving to safety late in the 2013 season. He was the Tigers' third-leading tackler in 2013 with 67 stops and had a team-leading three interceptions.
