EUGENE, Ore (AP) -- Oregon cornerback Troy Hill has been suspended indefinitely by the No. 10 Ducks following his arrest on Friday.

Details about the arrest, first reported by Comcast SportsNet Northwest, were not immediately released by the Eugene Police Department. Hill entered a not guilty plea to misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal mischief. His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 21.

Oregon coach Mark Helfrich released a statement Monday saying everyone affiliated with the program is held to a high standard of conduct, and expected to represent the university with "class, pride and integrity."

Helfrich said the school would wait until the legal process has finished before making a further determination of Hill's status.

Hill played as a backup in 11 games, with 29 tackles overall, including 21 solo. He also broke up four passes and forced a fumble.
