Bills Safety Raion Hill Carjacked

January 23, 2001

GRETNA, La. (AP) _ Two gunmen forced Buffalo Bills safety Raion Hill into his car and drove him to New Orleans, where another assailant’s car hit him, sheriff’s deputies said.

Hill, who played at LSU, sustained a leg injury, sheriff’s spokesman Col. John Fortunato said. The extent of the injury was not known.

Fortunato said the men approached Hill, 24, about 7 a.m. outside a restaurant in Gretna, across the Mississippi River from New Orleans.

Hill told detectives that the driver asked him several times during the carjacking if he had drugs, Fortunato said.

The men eventually stopped at an ATM about three blocks from Hill’s high school, but could not withdraw money. A black car then pulled next to Hill’s and followed it, Fortunato said.

Hill was ordered out of his car, and the second driver tried to run over him, injuring his leg. The men also stole a small amount of money and personal items from Hill, Fortunato said.

Hill played in eight games for the Bills last season.
