NFL prospect and former Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan was charged with assault and battery, stemming from a confrontation with two Ohio State fans on Dec. 1 after the Buckeyes defeated the Wolverines.

Lewan is scheduled for an April 8 arraignment on one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.

Ryan Munsch, 29, of the North Side said Lewan punched him in the face without provocation outside a restaurant in Ann Arbor, Mich., and then punched him in the midsection as he was talking to two women who had asked him if he was OK.

Meanwhile, junior offensive lineman Graham Glasgow, who started all 13 games last season, was suspended by Michigan coach Brady Hoke for part of spring practice and the opening game against Appalachian State. Glasgow’s name is on an open criminal complaint, though no charges have been filed.

• Doctors expect Indiana receiver Isaac Griffith to make a full recovery from a near downing along Florida’s Gulf Coast, a hospital spokeswoman in Sarasota, Fla., said.

Griffith was brought out of heavy sedation and was awake, breathing on his own and responding well to others yesterday. His condition was upgraded to serious.

A friend rescued Griffith, 19, after he was caught in a rip current on Monday at Siesta Beach in Sarasota.
