Tennessee Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan’s trial for alleged assault has been scheduled for October, which will be when the Titans have their bye week.
Tennessee Titans rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan was charged for assaulting two Ohio State football fans when he played for the Michigan Wolverines. This incident occurred outside the Brown Jug restaurant in Ann Arbor after the Wolverines lost a close game to the Buckeyes.
Lewan allegedly hit two men, but he and his lawyer, John Shea, insist that he was breaking up a fight between the two men. His ex-girlfriend and the two men maintain that Lewan is lying though.
Alexandra Dileo, Lewan’s ex-girlfriend, went on to describe the assault in detail. “He knocked a guy to the ground and punched him,” Dileo said.
His trial is set to begin Oct. 28 in Ann Arbor, and the trial date is conveniently set during the Titans’ bye week.
Lewan has also had previous incidents such as allegedly threatening to rape a woman if she did not drop charges against his former teammate Brendan Gibbons, who was expelled for sexual misconduct.
Despite his character concerns, Lewan brings great potential to the Titans’ offensive line since being a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big Ten tackle for the Wolverines.
