Jalen Mills, a safety out of LSU was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with second-degree battery after he punched a woman in the mouth — knocking her unconscious.
Via The Big Lead:
She was at Mills’ apartment complex when she knocked on Mills’ door looking for her friend. Mills opened the door then closed it in the victim’s face so she knocked again. When no one came to the door the victim walked away down the hall. She stated she heard someone say something to her while walking away and when she turned around Mills punched her in the mouth. She fell to the pavement and was unconscious briefly, according to the report. The victim required 4 stitches in her lip as a result of the attack.
Mills was 3rd in tackles last season and set to start for the Tigers his junior campaign. It took police several weeks to arrest Mills because after the school year ended he went home to Houston, TX, returning for summer school just this week. He dodged the police for 2 days before they arrested him early Wednesday morning at 2am.
According to LSU Mills has been suspended indefinitely. The investigation is still pending but if all of this turns out to be true, Mills should be dismissed from the team. This type of behavior is not acceptable on any level.
