According to court records, the former Michigan cornerback is now set for a pretrial hearing on April 12 at 9 a.m.
Lewis is facing a domestic violence charge after a reported altercation between him and his girlfriend early Wednesday morning.
“A female roommate of his called 911 to report a domestic dispute between them,” Ann Arbor police detective Matthew Lige told Land of 10 on Wednesday. “Law officers got statements from both parties, and were unable to determine the aggressor.”
Lewis posted a since-deleted tweet after the report surfaced, saying “It’s sad that somebody would want to control you so bad they would ruin your life over it.”
A star for Michigan’s defense, Lewis is expected to go in the early rounds of the NFL Draft. CBS currently rates him as the draft’s eighth-best cornerback and No. 46 overall player.
