Former Maryland Football OL Justin Lewis Punched Bar Manager In Face, According To Report

More details have emerged about recently-dismissed Maryland football ffensive lineman Justin Lewis, and they aren't pretty. A manager at a College Park bar claims that Lewis accused him of "looking at his girl," and then punched him in the face, according to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun.

The complainant, Alan Parcan, said the blow knocked two of his teeth loose and caused several lacerations in his mouth. Parcan works at RJ Bentleys, which has long been popular among Maryland students. He says that Lewis's accusations of him "looking at his girl" are false, and that the blow required a root canal procedure to repair a tooth.

When asked to provide her family's side of the story, Lewis's mother Patricia told Barker the following.

"We don't have a side of the story. We weren't there. The only thing we're doing is praying for our son. He'll get beyond this. This is just a bump in the road."

Lewis was dismissed from the team on Tuesday for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Starting Offensive Lineman Justin Lewis Dismissed From Maryland Football Team

Justin Lewis, an offensive lineman for the Maryland football team, has been dismissed due to a violation of team policies, the school announced Tuesday. In the press release, coach Randy Edsall declined to specify the violation.

"As with any organization there are policies which must be adhered to by all individuals and when they're not, there are consequences for an individual's actions," EdsalI said in a news release.

Lewis started 12 of 13 games for the Terps at right guard last season. The junior from South Carolina was expected to be one of the anchors on the line for the Terps. Instead, he becomes the 12th scholarship player with eligibility left to either leave the program or get kicked off the team since January 1, according to Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times. No matter what Lewis did, it's clear new coach Randy Edsall is leaving his mark on the team.
