Madison, Wisconsin. Former University of Wisconsin tailback P.J. Hill was rushed into some serious legal trouble. During the early hours of March 14th, Hill allegedly drove his vehicle into a guard rail which was quickly reported to police.
Officers responded just as Hill was speeding away. During the pursuit Hill lost control of his vehicle again and crashed into a wall. Officers drew their weapons and secured Hill. Hill was booked into jail and spent a few nights behind bars until being released on Monday. He is facing drunk driving, reckless driving and resisting arrest criminal charges.
The former Badger decided to enter the NFL draft this year forgoing a fourth season of college football. Hill was very productive for Wisconsin rushing over 1,000 yards per season for the past three years. Although, Hill is not a member of the NFL yet he might face mandatory treatment counseling if selected in the upcoming draft.
