Jalen Mills' attorney entered a not guilty plea Tuesday on Mills' behalf to misdemeanor simple battery charges, as first reported by Tiger Rag, citing East Baton Rouge district attorney Hillar Moore III.
Mills did not attend the Tuesday arraignment, according to the report.
His next court date is Jan. 27 for a status conference, where the two teams of attorneys will meet to update the facts of the case.
Mills was originally suspended from LSU following his June arrest on a count of second-degree battery, a felony. Those charges were reduced to a misdemeanor on Aug. 4, and Mills was reinstated to the team in time to start fall camp.
Mills has played in every game this season as the Tigers' starting free safety. He ranks sixth on the team with 28 tackles. He also has three pass breakups and an interception.
