Former LSU Tiger, Jeremy Hill was granted an early release from probation today (Mar. 19) by District Judge Mike Erwin according to local news reports.

Hill, a former running back for the LSU Tigers, was sentenced to two years probation due to his involvement in a fight outside a bar in Tigerland last year. Hill was arrested for punching another man outside a bar near the LSU campus last April.

Hill's probation was set to expire in July of 2015, but his attorney, Marci Blaze, requested an early release from the probation sentence. District Judge Mike Erwin granted the request, even though the prosecutor assigned to the case objected to the request.

Hill was suspended from the LSU football team after the incident, but later reinstated to the team after making a formal apology to the team and to the Baton Rogue community.

Hill had previously served a two year probation and community service work for a charge involving a minor that occurred when he was in high school. That probation period ended this past January.
