University of Colorado QB Jordan Webb, ex-lineman Alexander Lewis waive hearing in assault case

BOULDER, Colo. - University of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb and former Buffs lineman Alexander Lewis have waived their rights to preliminary hearings in an assault case.

The Daily Camera reported a judge granted the waivers Monday.

Witnesses told police that 22-year-old Air Force Academy cadet Lee Bussey was knocked unconscious in May when Lewis shoved his head into a brick wall. Lewis and Webb allegedly pushed him to the ground and punched him.

Webb's attorney said he believed Webb's role in the incident was non-criminal, while prosecutors disagreed.

Lewis transferred to Nebraska just hours before the incident.
