Report: USC receiver Joseph Lewis arrested on felony charge

A promising USC wideout is in trouble, according to a report from

Trojans sophomore Joseph Lewis was arrested on a felony charge on Monday afternoon, per the site’s Chris Trevino, who references an arrest report from the Los Angeles Police Department:

A LAPD spokesperson stated that Lewis was booked on a 273.5 (a) PC charge, which is defined as “corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.” A corporal injury is defined as a domestic battery that leaves a “visible” injury. The charge is listed as a felony on the arrest record.

A USC spokesperson issued this statement to Trevino and

“USC takes all reports of domestic abuse seriously and is cooperating fully with the law enforcement investigation. While this student code of conduct issue is being investigated, the student has been suspended from all football-related activities. Student disciplinary records and student conduct proceedings are confidential at USC and protected by law.”

Lewis joined the Trojans in 2017 after attending Hawkins High School in Los Angeles, where he grew into a 5-star recruit and attracted 33 scholarship offers from a variety of top national programs. When he signed with USC, he was the No. 31 recruit in the 2017 class, No. 4 receiver and No. 6 prospect hailing from California.

Lewis caught 4 passes for 39 yards in his first season at USC.
