College football | Legal file: Taylor Lewan to go to trial in Ohio State fan-punching case

High Contrast Normal Version


Tennessee Titans rookie Taylor Lewan will go to trial in October on charges that he punched an Ohio State fan.

The former Michigan offensive tackle is accused of hitting James Hughes of Denver after the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines on Nov. 30. Lewan is charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.

According to the police report, Lewan told police he only was separating people during a scuffle outside a restaurant hours after the game, but later acknowledged he “could have pushed someone.”

He was told during a pretrial hearing yesterday to return to Ann Arbor District Court on Oct. 27 for jury selection. The trial could begin the next morning.
