Miles suspends Pittman for altercation

LSU coach Les Miles has suspended junior defensive end Chase Pittman from the football team for his involvement in an off-campus altercation last week.

"I've met with Chase to discuss the situation and he understands what needs to be done, " Miles said. "We will let this incident run its course through the legal system, however, we expect that there will be a timely resolution to this matter."

"We take a great deal of pride in the conduct that our players exhibit. We expect it to be exemplary. Behavior that reflects poorly on LSU or this program will not be condoned."

Pittman, a Shreveport native, enters his first season with the Tigers after transferring from the University of Texas prior to the 2004 season.
