According to, former Michigan standout defensive back Jourdan Lewis has been charged with domestic violence stemming from an incident that happened early Wednesday morning. Lewis does not appear to have been arrested and he will be arraigned by the courts at a later date.

Per the report, Lewis got into a physical altercation with his 20-year old girlfriend, and police responded to the incident around 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday. An investigation later in the day led to charges being authorized for Lewis.

The charge is a misdemeanor.

With Michigan, Lewis was one of the best defensive backs in all of college football. Though relatively undersized — listed at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds — Lewis recorded 31 pass break ups and four interceptions as a corner over the past two seasons. He really emerged as a near shutdown option in the secondary, and he was a big part of Michigan’s defense playing so well over the past two years.

Lewis was a first-team All-American in both 2015 and 2016. He was expected to go in the upper-half of the 2017 NFL Draft prior to the incident.
