MADISON, Wis. -- Former Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and leading police on a chase.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the 22-year-old Hill was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

The newspaper, citing court documents, says police were called to a campus-area gas station after a vehicle hit a guard rail and left. Police spotted the car at a traffic light.

The driver fled. Police gave chase until the car crashed into a retaining wall. Hill was arrested at gunpoint.

Hill was released from jail Monday on a signature bond. His attorney didn't immediately return messages Monday.

Hill is the third-leading rusher in Wisconsin history and eligible for the NFL draft.
