LSU runningback Jeremy Hill was arrested early Saturday morning for an incident at a local bar.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said that Hill, 20, was arrested early Saturday morning.

Police were called to the disturbance at Reggie's Bar in Tigerland at around 2:00 a.m.

The incident was caught on video by a witness at the scene. Hill is seen striking another 20 year old in the head with his fist. They say a second man is also shown striking the victim with his fist which caused the victim to go unconcious.

When officers arrived on scene, Hill and the second man were no longer at the bar. They later found Hill and arrested him with simple battery.

The second person is still unknown at this time.

LSU representatives say that they have no comment at this time.
