After being arraigned on charges of menacing and criminal mischief on Monday, Oregon Ducks cornerback Troy Hill has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Mark Helfrich.
As Comcast Sports Net Northwest initially reported, Hill was arrested last Friday evening on charges of menacing and fourth-degree assault. No further details about the arrest were released by the Eugene Police.
Helfrich spoke about Hill’s arrest in a prepared statement:
We are aware of the incident and charges involving Troy Hill and he is suspended indefinitely from all football-related activities. We expect every member of our program to hold themselves to a high standard of conduct and to represent this University with class, pride and integrity. We will wait until the legal process has concluded before making any final determination of Troy Hill’s status.
Hill played in 11 games for the Ducks in 2013, totaling 21 solo tackles and four pass breakups. He was kept out of Oregon’s rivalry game against the Oregon State Beavers for an unspecified violation of team rules.
