Dallas Cowboys defensive back Jourdan Lewis could be in some hot water. Lewis is supposed to be in court in July for the charges, but Dallas Morning News has discovered an older case as well, where chares were not filed.
Lewis is accused of dragging his girlfriend across the floor and grabbing her by the neck in March at their apartment in Ann Arbor, according to police reports released to The Dallas Morning News via open records requests.
Records also show Ann Arbor police responded two years earlier to a report of a similar physical altercation at the same apartment. The 2015 investigation didn’t result in any charges. Lewis’ girlfriend called 911 to report domestic assault in both incidents.
In that incident, the girlfriend told police Lewis “pushed her backward with both hands,” into closet doors, hard enough that she knocked the doors off their tracks. She also said Lewis grabbed her, pulled her and caused her to fall on her knee. And she said that when she called 911, Lewis hit her hand twice to try to stop her from calling.
“I completely think that all charges will be dropped, and I think I will be exonerated from everything,” Lewis said after he was drafted. “I’m completely innocent. I believe that wholeheartedly.”
