Lewis cleared of as­sault

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

A jury has ac­quit­ted Dal­las Cow­boy rookie cor­ner­back Jour­dan Lewis of do­mes­tic as­sault. The panel de­lib­er­ated for slightly more than an hour Tues­day be­fore find­ing the for­mer Michi­gan star in­no­cent. Lewis said he was “elated” with the ver­dict. Lewis, 21, was ac­cused of as­sault­ing his for­mer girl­friend at his Ann Ar­bor, Mich., apart­ment in March. Lewis didn’t tes­tify, but the jury saw a video record­ing of a po­lice in­ter­view in which he said he was asleep when the wo­man woke him to com­plain about fi­nances, and he hit her with a pil­low. The wo­man tes­ti­fied he struck her in the face so hard she was forced into a wall. Two Ann Ar­bor po­lice of­fi­cers said they didn’t see any in­juries on the wo­man and she re­fused med­i­cal at­ten­tion.
