Report: Taylor Lewan Will Be Charged for Assaulting Ohio State Fan in November

Former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan will be charged with three misdemeanors for assaulting an Ohio State fan, according to an report.

Online records from the 15th District Court in Ann Arbor show Lewan is scheduled for arraignment at 9 a.m. April 8. He is to be charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery.

The charges stem from a confrontation that took place about 12:30 a.m. Dec. 1 in the 1200 block of South University Avenue. The incident took place after Ohio State University defeated U-M, and two Buckeyes fans reported being assaulted.

Lewan denied involvement with the incident when asked about it last month at the NFL Combine, but Washtenaw County Prosecutor Brian Mackie saw things a little differently. Lewan is facing a fine and/or potential jail time.

In Michigan, assault and battery is a misdemeanor punishable by 93 days in jail or a fine of up to $500.

Aggravated assault is a more serious crime, defined as a charge against “a person who assaults an individual without a weapon and inflicts serious or aggravated injury upon that individual without intending to commit murder or to inflict great bodily harm less than murder.” That charge is punishable by one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

And that's how Taylor Lewan went 0-2 on a cold, November Saturday.

Anyway, you hate to see a young man get this kind of crap strewn on him. Let us hope that the legal process gets this one right, no matter what the outcome.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

TSUN promptly decides to forfeit the November loss to show that they take disciplinary matters seriously.

The sad thing is nothing will probably come of this and he will still be taken in the 1st round of the upcoming draft.
