NFL prospect Taylor Lewan to be charged in December fight.
Former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, who is projected to be a first-round pick in May’s NFL Draft, is reportedly going to be charged with three misdemeanors stemming from a December incident.
On December 1st, two Ohio State fans reported that they were assaulted by Lewan after Ohio State defeated Michigan.
Detective Lt. Robert Pfannes confirmed the charges, but declined to release more information about the investigation. He said it’s standard procedure is to not release investigation results before a suspect is arraigned.
He added Lewan is the only person facing charges from the incident.
“Unless new information surfaces, it appears he’s the only who is going to be charged at this time,” Pfannes said.
It is unlikely that this incident will hurt Lewan’s draft stock, as he is considered one of the top three offensive tackles. Lewan was a standout during his time at Michigan and a two-time All-American.
