A Colorado judge Monday set an arraignment date for a potential Husker football transfer facing charges in connection to the beating of a 22-year-old in May.

Alex Lewis is set to return to court July 26, following Monday's preliminary hearing, according to a clerk at the Boulder County Combined Court.

Prosecutors charged the lineman with second-degree assault and two misdemeanor counts of harassment for a May 11 fight.

Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb, who is facing a second-degree assault charge for the same fight, was in court Monday, too, and given an Aug. 2 arraignment date.

According to a report from the Boulder Police Department, witnesses say Lewis and Webb left another man "disoriented and unaware of his surroundings" after the early-morning fight.

Witnesses told police that Lewis pushed the man into a brick wall multiple times, then both players started to punch him and throw him to the ground. Lewis also allegedly pushed away a female witness who tried to step in.

Both men are free on $10,000 bond.
