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.
