Alex Lewis — who announced Friday he was transferring from Colorado to Nebraska — was arrested and booked Saturday along with CU quarterback Jordan Webb on second-degree assault charges, according to the Denver Post. Lewis was also charged with two counts of harassment. The Post cited a Boulder (Colo.) County Sheriff’s report. Reached by phone, the Boulder police department did not immediately have any incident or arrest details available. Lewis’ lawyer, Donald Brenner, told the Post that Lewis “got involved in a bad situation” and “justice will play itself out.”
In a statement, new Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre in part said: “As for Alex Lewis, as of Friday he was off of the team when he did a media interview and announced that he is transferring to Nebraska. Since he is no longer a Colorado Buffalo, it will be up to Nebraska to decide what discipline he might face.”
In Colorado, a second-degree assault charge is considered a felony, according to the Post, and a conviction comes with mandatory prison time.
Alex Lewis is the son of former Husker Bill Lewis.
