Former University of Michigan Football Star Accepts Plea Deal in Assault Case (video)

Tennessee Titans player and former University of Michigan football standout Taylor Lewan was charged with misdemeanor assault after an incident that sent an Ohio State University football fan to the emergency room on the evening after the OSU/Michigan football game. 

His trial was set to begin last month but was postponed pending a plea agreement that was entered into Thursday, Oct. 30. In the plea agreement, Lewan plead guilty to two lesser misdemeanors, disorderly person drunk, and disturbing the police. The deal includes probation, with the length to be set at his sentencing, anger management classes, no contact with the victims, no alcohol or illegal substances, and restitution of $1,714 to Ryan Munsch, a 28-year-old Ohio man who ended up in the hospital after the incident.

Lewan will be back in court, on December 15th, for sentencing.
