Wolverines’ Lewis charged with domestic assault


Michigan Wolverines former football player Jourdan Lewis was slapped with a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence. Court records stated the alleged incident happened yesterday but provided little more detail so it is unclear when his court appearance will be taking place.

Mlive.com interviewed Ann Arbor Detective Lt. Matthew Lige and said Lewis is accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend. Lewis was not arrested but was interviewed then released and later charged.

Lewis has not commented to the media about the alleged incident but did take to Twitter to Tweet:

That tweet could not be found at the time of this article posting so it appears Lewis deleted it.

Lewis is expected to be drafted in the middle rounds of next month’s NFL Draft and is staying near The Big House in Ann Arbor preparing for next month’s NFL and Michigan’s Pro Day. Pro day is happening on March 24 and gives prospects like Lewis the opportunity to meet and greet NFL GMs and perform workouts.

Lewis is sure to have his day be tainted with questions and concerns over this incident.

Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh made a statement early last season after Lewis sat out a game without an injury and it was speculated he may have possibly been suspended:

“Jourdan Lewis is one of the finest guys we have on the team. Football character and off-the-field character. There’s few, if any better, than Jourdan Lewis. Just wanted to clarify that for the record.”

We’re awaiting the results of this latest headline and how Harbaugh might respond.

PGA Dustin Johnson arrested for DUI (POLICE VIDEO)


PGA golfer Dustin Johnson was arrested and charged with DUI on March 30, 2009 after police yanked his SUV to the curb for a routine traffic violation.

The officer who pulled Johnson over approached him then determined there was suspicion to believe the second-year pro was over the limit…and by the looks of this police cam video below, they have a strong case.

Johnson spent some time behind bars before posting his bail that was rumored to be set at around $2,000.

The 24-year-old Johnson who lives in the Myrtle Beach area is currently ranked No. 9 in the FedEx Cup standings and No. 40 in the world.

This is at least the second run in with police for Johnson. In 2001 he was involved with a group of teens who stole a gun. Johnson later was determined to be the buyer of the bullets for the weapon that may have been used in a murder.

Johnson agreed to testify against the shooter who was an older brother of a friend of his and helped put the killer behind bars for life.

Might be time for this dude to start hiring a cab or limo to drive him around.
