BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU starting safety Jalen Mills has been indefinitely suspended from the football team by coach Les Miles after the junior's arrest on a battery charge early Wednesday morning.

A probable cause document states that a woman says Mills punched her in the mouth on May 4 in his apartment. She says she fell to the ground and was briefly unconscious.

Mills was contacted by police on May 29 and he told them he was in Houston and would return to Baton Rouge on June 9, the first day of summer school and football workouts. A June 10 appointment was set for Mills to meet with the police, but he did not make the meeting.

After police were unsuccessful in contacting Mills by telephone, a warrant for his arrest was issued.
