Jeremy Hill released from probation

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - With the NFL draft less than two months away, former LSU running back Jeremy Hill is no longer under court supervision.

Over a prosecutor's objection, The Advocate reports state District Judge Mike Erwin on Wednesday granted an early termination of Hill's two-year probation stemming from an April incident outside a Tigerland bar in which Hill punched a man.

Hill's probation wasn't set to expire until July 2015, but Marci Blaize, Hill's attorney, asked Erwin to release the former star tailback from his court supervision because Hill has completed the conditions of his probation.

Those conditions included paying a portion of the victim's medical bills, writing a letter of apology to him, performing 50 hours of community service and attending an anger management class.
