Former Michigan and current Dallas Cowboys cornerback Jourdan Lewis was in court Tuesday for a trial on domestic charges stemming from a March fight with his then-girlfriend over an Ann Arbor apartment electric bill.

A jury of his peers acquitted the Michigan Man of all charges.


“I’m elated ... of course,” Lewis said after the seven-member jury reached its verdict late Tuesday afternoon in 15th District Court.

The verdict came after a full day of testimony before Judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines.

Witnesses included Lewis’ 20-year-old ex-girlfriend, her mother and two Ann Arbor police officers.

Lewis slid to the third round due to the accusations, but Jim Harbaugh vouched for Lewis' character, and the Cowboys' gamble paid off. The cornerback is expected to join the team Wednesday.
