Report: Buccaneers RB Michael Hill arrested in Missouri
Buccaneers running back Michael Hill was arrested Thursday morning after allegedly being involved in a bar fight in Missouri.
Hill was in a bar in St. Joseph, Mo., just after 1 a.m. on Thursday when a fight broke out. The fight left two officers with minor injuries and led to Hill being taken into custody. One of the injured officers described his injury as a 'minor bump and bruise.'
"We have been informed of the situation involving Michael Hill and are in the process of gathering additional information,” the Buccaneers said in a statement, via Pro Football Talk.
Hill was a rookie in 2013 and has only been with the Buccaneers since November. Tampa Bay added Hill to the roster after running back Mike James was placed on injured reserve following an ankle injury. The Buccaneers signed Hill off of Green Bay's practice squad.
The 24-year-old went to college at Missouri Western State, which is located less than five miles from the bar where Hill was arrested.
