Lewan To Be Arraigned In Assault Case

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tennessee Titans’ first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan faces a court hearing in a Michigan assault case.

The former Michigan offensive tackle is to be arraigned Monday in Ann Arbor District Court. The 6-foot-7, 309-pound Lewan is charged with three assault counts stemming from a confrontation with two Ohio State fans after the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines last fall.

Lewan was asked about the Dec. 1 incident during a news conference at the NFL’s scouting combine. He said he “wasn’t in any fight” and “was actually breaking something up.”

Defense attorney John Shea says his client’s “position is well-known from earlier comments.”

The 22-year-old Lewan is charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.

The Titans selected him with the 11th overall pick.
