Joseph Lewis was one of the highest-rated wide receiver recruits in the country when he joined USC last year, but his career is in danger of falling apart before it ever got started now that he has once again been arrested for domestic violence.
According to a report from TMZ, Lewis was taken into custody on Wednesday night following a physical altercation with a woman. The victim reportedly fled the home where the incident took place and called police, and police came to the house and arrested the 18-year-old Lewis. His bail has been set at $100,000.
To make matters worse, Lewis was suspended from all football activities back in February following a separate domestic violence incident. He ultimately pled no contest and was given 36 months probation, so he could be in serious legal trouble if found guilty this time. Given the statement USC issued after the first arrest, it would not be a surprise if Lewis is dismissed from the team.
Lewis, the No. 31 overall recruit in his 2016 high school class, caught just four passes for 39 yards with the Trojans last season. He was expected to take on a much bigger role as a sophomore.
