Former University of Michigan star offensive lineman Taylor Lewan is going to be charged with three misdemeanors stemming from an assault on Dec. 1 and will be arraigned in April, according to Kyle Feldscher of MLive.com and court records.
The incident occurred around midnight on Dec. 1 after the Michigan vs. Ohio State football game. Two Ohio State fans reported being assaulted by Lewan.
Detective Lt. Robert Pfannes said in Feldscher’s story that Lewan is the only one facing any chagers from the incident. Nobody was arrested at the scene.
Aggravated assault is punishable in the state of Michigan by a year in jail and/or a fine of $1,000, while assault and battery is punishable by 93 days in jail or a fine up to $500.
He has denied being in a fight, citing that he was actually breaking up a confrontation and one of the men said that he assaulted him.
The timing of the incident could not be any worse for Lewan, who is projected to be a top pick in this May’s NFL Draft.
