Univ. of Colorado QB and UNL Transfer, Alex Lewis, Arrested on Assault Charges

colorado-buffaloes(AP)-University of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb and former CU offensive lineman Alex Lewis have been charged with second-degree assault.

Athletics spokesman Dave Plati says the two were arrested early Saturday morning, but he declined to comment about the charges because he hadn’t seen the police report. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately return a call for comment.

Lewis, the starting left guard who announced Friday he was transferring to Nebraska, also was charged with two counts of harassment.

Webb 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.

Details of what led to Saturday’s arrests have not been released. Webb and Lewis are scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
