nebraska_helmetBOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors want to file another assault charge against former University of Colorado lineman Alexander Lewis over a May fight that left an Air Force Academy cadet unconscious.

The Boulder Daily Camera reported Tuesday (http://tinyurl.com/lgacscy ) prosecutors filed a motion in district court to add a charge of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon. The alleged weapon is identified as Lewis’ hands.

The 21-year-old Lewis pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault causing serious injury and harassment. Defense attorney Gary Lozow said Lewis would plead not guilty to the new charge.

Lewis transferred to the University of Nebraska in May. He’s free on $10,000 bond.

CU quarterback Jordan Webb pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in September stemming from the fight. He was sentenced to probation and time on a work crew.
