Former Star Badger Football Player Escapes Criminal Charge

Former Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill won't face criminal charges after being accused of leading police on a short chase in Madison while driving drunk.

The 22-year-old Hill instead was ticketed Tuesday for first-offense drunken driving, reckless driving, refusing to take a Breathalyzer test and driving without headlights. He was arrested March 14 after he allegedly crashed into a guard rail at an Open Pantry store, then led police on a chase back to his apartment, where he crashed his car into a retaining wall.

A first offense in Wisconsin is punishable by fines and a license revocation. A second offense carries a minimum five days in jail along with fines and a license revocation.

Hill is also facing a first-offense drunken driving charge in Arizona.

The running back is the third-leading rusher in Badgers history.
