Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb and former Buffaloes offensive lineman Alex Lewis have been charged with second-degree assault after they were arrested early Saturday morning in Boulder, Colo.
According to a police report, witnesses say Webb and Lewis knocked another man unconscious when Lewis shoved the man’s head into a brick wall and both players pushed him to the ground and punched him. The incident began when the man and Lewis bumped into each other, which led to an argument, police said.
Webb, who started his career at Kansas before transferring, was Colorado’s primary starter last season, throwing for 1,434 yards and eight touchdowns with eight interceptions. He is recovering after tearing his right ACL during spring practice.
Lewis, the starting left guard who announced Friday he was transferring to Nebraska, also was charged with two counts of harassment.
“Once all of the facts come to light, if Jordan is found responsible for any misconduct, he will be disciplined according to team rules,” first-year Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement. “As for Alex Lewis, as of Friday he was off of the team when he did a media interview and announced that he is transferring to Nebraska. Since he is no longer a Colorado Buffalo, it will be up to Nebraska to decide what discipline he might face.”
, both men are being held without bond until their first appearance in court Monday.
