05:39 PM ET 12.23 | According to a reports, offensive tackle Taylor Lewan is facing assault charges. The event in question took place the evening after the Michigan Wolverines lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes in this year's version of "The Game" on Dec. 1 in Ann Arbor. The report, taken from the victim and witnesses describes a scene where Lewan essentially cold cocked an otherwise innocent bystander, which led to people having to pull Lewan away long enough for the victim to be escorted away by friends. To this point, the police have refused to comment on the situation and this is one side of the story, but the incident does not look good to one of the best offensive tackles in the country.

Good luck explaining that to GM's before the draft.

What a dummy. Of all the times to clock an innocent bystander, right now through next summer is a really bad time for Lewan.

He's off to a great start.

Looks like he's starting off his National Felons League career in style.

Richie Incognito likes Tewan's leadership style. Coldcocking the guy was an act of friendship

Lewan essentially cold cocked an otherwise innocent bystander, which led to people having to pull Lewan away long enough for the victim to be escorted away by friends.

There is more to this than is being reported. They had to pull him off the guy, so something occurred beforehand.

The guy is 300 pounds. He's bigger, stronger, and meaner than almost everyone else. And apparently he has anger and self-restraint issues. He has to learn that he cannot use all that to intimidate and bully others. Is the school considering putting citizenship and adult behavior before football by suspending him for the bowl game? Apparently not.

I just heard that he pulled a Chris Brown and beat the living crap out of his dead, imaginary girlfriend ... oh, wait ...

December 24, 2013  12:27 PM ET

the dude is a moron. He has major behavior issues. Might become the Suh of offensive linemen with the crap he pulls on the field like trying to rip the helmet off of a MSU DE. This is also the same guy who threaten a girl that she would get raped again if she reported a sexual assault on his roommate who was also a football player a couple years back. The guy is a ****!

According to the victim he just walked up and punched him. The victim says that he didnt do anything to provoke the incident? Im sure there is more to this story then what the victim is leading on, Im sure there is an entirely different account of lewans part.

I like the example I heard, I know better than to go into downtown chicago and start throwing gang signs. Sure that when the rival gang shoots me, he is breaking the law, but I should know better than to provoke it.

To be honest lewan acted like every OSU fan that I know after a loss, break car windows, punch people, get up and scream in peoples faces. He acted like a buckeye, which is funny cause according to the police report he was wearing a red t-shirt. (Temps that night were in the low teens BTW)

First of all he is NOT a top draft pick. His play sucked this year to be honest and was beaten often on the line of scimmage. May be a guy who should have gone pro last year, his stock fell a lot this year. Lots of mistakes and penalties.

The kid sort of looks like Richie and has a good tattoo base to start.

Mich fan here, I thought some guy from A&M was rated higher on draft boards too. Plus I thought a guy from bama was. Regardless of what this kid did or does there is no way it can go any worse for him in the eyes of a GM after Dez Bryant came thru.
