Oregon CB Troy Hill was arrested for assault on Friday night and suspended indefinitely Monday evening.

Hill was arrested Friday evening and initially charged with fourth-degree assault and strangulation. However, when he was arraigned on Monday, he was charged with menacing and criminal mischief.

“We are aware of the incident and charges involving Troy Hill and he is suspended indefinitely from all football-related activities," Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said in a statement released Monday evening.

“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.”

Hill spent the weekend in jail. Details of the incident were not released. He has 29 total tackles and four pass breakups and four passes defensed in 11 games. He was suspended for Oregon's game against Oregon State for violating team rules.
