Michigan’s Jourdan Lewis, who was one of the best senior cornerbacks in the nation in 2016, pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge Thursday in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Lewis, 21, considered a third-day draft prospect, was accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend early Wednesday. Lewis is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing April 12.
Police responded to a 911 call placed by the 20-year-old woman after 1 a.m. Wednesday when the alleged incident took place, Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige told The Detroit News. Lewis was not present on arrival but officers did speak with him later where he was said to have cooperated.
Lewis was later charged around 4 p.m. that same day.
Lewis appeared to be referencing the alleged incident in a message posted to his Twitter account at 4:53 p.m. on Twitter. He later deleted the tweet.
“It’s sad that somebody would want to control you so bad they would ruin your life over it,” he wrote.
Michigan is scheduled to hold its pro day on March 24.
