Former Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence by the Washtenaw County (Mich.) Prosecutor’s Office, according to MLive.com.

Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige said that Lewis, 21, is accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend. She called police to his home around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning about the alleged incident.

Lewis was not initially charged at the scene. The misdemeanor charge was later filed around 4 p.m.

“It wasn’t clear to the officers (Wednesday morning) if there was an assault, or who the aggressor was,” Lige said.

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.

Lewis’s arraignment date has not yet been scheduled.

Lewis, who played four seasons at Michigan, is expected to be a second- or third-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Michigan is scheduled to hold its pro day on March 24.
