Former Michigan cornerback and NFL draft prospect Jourdan Lewis has been charged with misdemeanor domestic assault by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office, according to John Counts of MLive.com.

Lewis has been accused of assaulting his 20-year-old girlfriend early Wednesday morning. On Thursday, Lewis pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge, according to ESPN's Dan Murphy

Officers didn't initially charge Lewis when called to his home. "It wasn't clear to the officers (Wednesday morning) if there was an assault, or who the aggressor was," said Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige, per Counts.

Lewis' girlfriend called the police after the alleged incident, and after further investigation by authorities, the prosecutor's office levied the assault charge. 

Lewis has been projected to be an early-round selection, with B/R's Matt Miller ranking him as the No. 73 overall player in this year's draft class and the No. 11 cornerback. Miller also called Lewis the best slot corner in the draft.
