New Bucs coach Lovie Smith has had plenty of welcome demands on his time this week. He’s now had at least one unwelcome distraction.
Buccaneers running back Michael Hill was arrested in Missouri on Thursday, according to the St. Joseph (Mo.) News-Press.
The incident occurred at a St. Joseph bar. Two officers suffered minor injuries in the scuffle.
Hill, a rookie in 2013, was arrested for failure to obey a lawful order and resisting arrest.
“We have been informed of the situation involving Michael Hill and are in the process of gathering additional information,” Buccaneers director of communications Nelson Luis said.
A native of St. Joseph, Hill was signed from the Green Bay practice squad on November 13. After the draft, Hill signed with the Chargers.
In 2012, Hill rushed for 2,168 yards at Missouri Western State University.
