BOULDER, Colo. - University of Colorado Buffaloes quarterback Jordan Webb and a former football player were arrested for assault Saturday morning, according to David Plati, a spokesperson for the athletic department.
Webb, 21, was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree assault just after 9 a.m., according to the Boulder County Jail's arrest report. Webb cannot bond out of jail until a hearing on Monday,
Police were dispatched to 12th and College just after 3 a.m. Saturday on a report of a "large fight."
Former Buff Alexander William Lewis, 21, was later arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault and harassment. Lewis had announced Friday he was transferring to the University of Nebraska.
The Buffalo's new head football coach Mike MacIntyre released this statement Sunday morning:
"Jordan's exact involvement in this incident is still being investigated. We continually stress the importance of appropriate behavior to our players and do not tolerate any detrimental conduct in our football program. Once all of the facts come to light, if Jordan is found responsible for any misconduct, he will be disciplined according to team rules."
"As for Alex Lewis, as of Friday he was off of the team when he did a media interview and announced that he is transferring to Nebraska. Since he is no longer a Colorado Buffalo, it will be up to Nebraska to decide what discipline he might face."
