The attorney for suspended LSU defensive back Jalen Mills told USA Today Wednesday that his client did not punch the female victim in the alleged May 4 battery that led to Mills' arrest this week.
"He was not the person who struck the victim," Brent Stockstill said. "That would be consistent with some of the information I've received ... I've been contacted by several people that were there when the incident took place. And their version of what happened is not consistent with the arrest warrant."

According to a Baton Rouge Police warrant, the victim said she was visiting the complex and knocked on Mills door. He opened the door and then closed it in her face so she knocked again. She walked away but said she heard someone say something and when she turned around, Mills punched her in the mouth.
The victim fell to the pavement and was knocked unconscious, the warrant said. Four stitches were required to close the cut on her lip.
