Former University of Southern California wide receiver Joseph Lewis was arrested on domestic violence charges Wednesday for the second time this year.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Lewis was involved in an altercation with an unnamed woman at a residence in Los Angeles. The woman reportedly fled the home during the incident and called police. Lewis was later arrested on $100,000 bond.

The arrest marks Lewis’second brush with the law this year. He was arrested in February on five misdemeanor charges related to a domestic violence case. He accepted a plea deal and served 21 days in jail, from which he was just released on July 6. No further information about this latest arrest was available.

Lewis was suspended from the USC football program indefinitely after the February arrest. In a May interview with the Los Angeles Times Lewis said  he hoped to return to USC in time for the start of fall camp Aug. 3. A USC spokesman said afterward that Lewis’ status with the team hasn’t changed and he remains off the roster.

A five-star recruit out of Augustus F. Hawkins High School in L.A., the 6-2, 197-pound Hawkins caught four passes for the Trojans last season as a true freshman, He was removed from the roster completely just before spring practice, according to the Times.
