Former Michigan CB Jourdan Lewis Charged With Domestic Violence
Former Michigan cornerback and NFL draft prospect Jourdan Lewis was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence on Wednesday in Ann Arbor, Michigan, according to court records.
Police responded to a 911 call around 1 a.m. in Ann Arbor Wednesday from what police believed to be Lewis’ girlfriend. The woman alleged that she and Lewis had an argument and that he assaulted her at an apartment.
Lewis was not at the apartment when police arrived, but spoke to them via telephone. He was not arrested, and the woman did not receive any medical attention for injuries.
“There were no visible apparent signs of injury, but she is claiming that assault occurred,” Lige said. “Assault can occur without apparent injury. It wasn’t clear if an assault had occurred, so officers released him at the scene.”
The prosecutor’s office filed a misdemeanor arrest warrant for Lewis.
In a statement, Washtenaw County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Steven Hiller said his office “will not release information regarding a request for prosecution until the request has been denied or, if a prosecution is authorized, until the arraignment has taken place.”
Lewis tweeted about a half-hour after the charges were released, writing, “It’s sad that somebody would want to control you so bad they would ruin your life over it,” and then it was deleted.
Lewis was named to numerous All-America teams in 2015 and 2016, and holds Michigan’s single-season record for pass breakups with 22 in 2015 and was a two-time All-Big Ten player. He was a finalist for the Thorpe Award last season. He is considered a mid-round prospect in this year’s NFL draft
