LSU running back Jeremy Hill was arrested after an incident at a bar in Baton Rouge on Friday night, according to Tigers beat writer Glenn Guilbeau and others. The details aren't sounding good at all, to say the least:

Hill was one of LSU's offensive stars in the team's spring game held last Saturday. He rushed for 755 yards and 12 touchdowns as a freshman in 2012 after pleading guilty that year to a charge of unlawful carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Hill's arrest is the latest in a string of legal issues facing current and former LSU players. Ex-Tigers defensive back Tharold Simon, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, was arrested on Thursday night on multiple charges — despite having "20 witnesses" say he did nothing wrong.

Tyrann Mathieu and three other LSU players, including former quarterback Jordan Jefferson, were arrested in October on drug-related charges. Mathieu, who missed the entire 2012 season as a result of his legal issues, was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday.
