On Sunday morning, Kentucky Wildcats senior receiver Rahsaan Lewis was charged following an arrest on Sunday morning in Lexington.
Josh Moore of the Lexington Herald-Leader was the first to report the news.
Lewis was pulled over by police, and was later charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, improper start from a park position, and reckless driving. He was arraigned Monday, and has a pretrial conference scheduled for April 22nd.
“We are aware of the incident, and we will continue to monitor the situation as it develops,” UK spokesperson Susan Lax said in a statement regarding the news.
Lewis, the son of NFL great Ray Lewis, gained some traction in the wideout room over the last two seasons. The walk-on played in six games, recording two catches on the year. He missed the other seven games due to a knee injury. He made a key block in the Citrus Bowl that helped Wan’Dale Robinson get to the goal line before Chris Rodriguez punched it in for the game-winning score.
Lewis did participate in practice early Tuesday, which was open to the media.
