BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Authorities say they've arrested a second suspect in a bar fight last weekend that had also resulted in the arrest of LSU running back Jeremy Hill.

Baton Rouge police Lt. Don Kelly says the second suspect is Robert Bayardo, who has no connection to LSU football. Kelly says the 20-year-old Bayardo has been booked with felony second-degree battery following his arrest Friday morning.

Police say he was caught on a mobile phone video knocking out another man early last Saturday.

Hill was booked last Saturday with misdemeanor simple battery, but could wind up in jail because he was already on probation stemming from his guilty plea to a misdemeanor when he was in high school.

Hill, LSU's leading rusher in 2012, has been suspended by the team.
