Former Michigan offensive lineman and first-round NFL draft prospect Taylor Lewan has been charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery stemming from an incident on Dec. 1, 2013, according to court records. Lewan, who is projected as the No. 2 offensive tackle by Scouts Inc. in May's NFL draft, is scheduled to be arraigned on April 8 at 9 a.m. in the 15th District Court in Ann Arbor, Mich. According to the Ann Arbor News, which earlier reported the charges, Lewan was being investigated for his role in an incident taking place on the 1200 block of South University Avenue around 12:30 a.m. on Dec. 1, following Michigan's loss to Ohio State. The News reported that two Ohio State fans said they were assaulted in the incident. At the NFL combine last month, Lewan denied being in any sort of altercation. "I went over the Ohio State incident once before. I wasn't in any fight of any kind," Lewan said. "I was actually breaking something up and some guy said that I slugged him, but that's not who I am off the field, that's not the kind of person I am. "It might seem that way because of the way I play football, but that's not the way I am as a person."
