University of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb was reportedly arrested on assault charges over the weekend after an altercation in Boulder.
According to the Denver Post, the 22-year-old Webb and his former teammate Alexander Lewis allegedly knocked another student unconscious by slamming him into into a brick wall.
The victim, which was later identified as 22-year-old Lee Bussey, a student at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, was taken to a nearby hospital were he received stitches.
The Camera Daily has more on the alleged assault below:
“Bussey and Lewis bumped into each other, which led to a verbal argument and a shoving match. The friend then told police Lewis repeatedly shoved Bussey into a brick wall, causing his head to hit the wall several times. The friend told police Webb then came and the two men shoved Bussey to the ground and began punching him.”
In addition to the assault charges, Lewis — who announced Friday he was transferring to Nebraska — is also facing two charges of harassment.
Despite the charges against Webb, Lewis insisted his teammate was never involved in the physical altercation.
“Jordan’s exact involvement in this incident is still being investigated,” first-year CU coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement. “We continually stress the importance of appropriate behavior to our players and do not tolerate any detrimental conduct in our football program.”
“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.”
Webb and Lewis are scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
