Terp Starting O-Lineman Dismissed From Team

LEWIS #78
According to the Washington Post’s Terrapin Insider Eric Prisbell and other sources, Justin Lewis, who started in 12 of 13 games at right guard last season, has been dismissed from the Maryland football program because of an undisclosed violation of team policies, Coach Randy Edsall announced Tuesday.

“As with any organization there are policies which must be adhered to by all individuals and when they are not, there are consequences for an individual’s actions,” Edsall said in a news release issued by the school.

A native of Johnsonville, S.C., Lewis played in 24 career games, including 15 starts — all at right guard.

Evidently,  Lewis turned himself in to authorities Tuesday in response to a second-degree assault charge levied against him by a manager at a bar in College Park.

According to Alain Parcain, the manager at RJ Bentley's, Lewis punched him in the face for "looking at his girl."
