Michigan OT Taylor Lewan, forecast as a top 15 pick in this year’s NFL draft, will reportedly be charged with assault and battery stemming from a December altercation with a couple of Ohio State fans.
That according to an MLive and Ann Arbor News report. The incident allegedly occurred on Dec. 1st after Ohio State had beaten Michigan where two Buckeye fans allege they were assaulted by Lewan.
Lewan was asked about the alleged incident in his NFL combine press conference and maintained that he was a peacemaker in the incident.
“I wasn’t in any fight of any kind,” he said. “I was actually breaking something up and some guy said that I slugged him. But that’s not who I am off the field, that’s not the kind of person I am. I might seem that way because of the way I play football, but that’s not who I am as a person.”
Lewan is scheduled to be arraigned on April 8th, which is right in the middle of NFL pre-draft visits.
