BATON ROUGE - LSU running back Jeremy Hill and another man were formally charged in Baton Rouge on Monday with misdemeanor simple battery in connection with a late-April scuffle in a bar parking lot.

Hi­­ll and Robert Bayardo, who is not an LSU student, will be arraigned on Friday, East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore said.

The matter has put Hill's 2013 season in doubt because LSU's leading rusher last season is already on probation stemming from his January 2012 plea of misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Hill's probationary status likely will not be reviewed by the court for possible revocation until the charges have been resolved, Moore said.

LSU coach Les Miles has suspended Hill pending the outcome of the case.
