Ducks football player suspended following arrest

EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

An Oregon Ducks football player has been suspended indefinitely following an arrest in Eugene on charges including assault.

Police said Troy Hill, 22, was arrested at 9:45 p.m. Friday at a private residence. He was arraigned in court Monday.

Hill is a junior cornerback for the University of Oregon football team.

Coach Mark Helfrich released a statement Monday saying Hill 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," Helfrich said.

Police said nobody else was arrested in connection to the incident. Officers would not reveal any other details about the case.

Hill was originally charged with felony counts of fourth-degree assault and strangulation, along with misdemeanor charges of menacing and second-degree criminal mischief, according to the Lane County Jail website.

Comcast SportsNet reports Hill was arraigned only on misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal mischief Monday.

The Ducks face the Texas Longhorns in the 2013 Valero Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30.
