KUSA - University of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb was arrested Saturday night for second-degree assault. Details on the arrest were not immediately available.

Former Colorado offensive lineman Alex Lewis was also arrested for second-degree assault and harassment. Both were arrested by Boulder Police.

"Jordan's exact involvement in this incident is still being investigated. We continually stress the importance of appropriate behavior to our players and do not tolerate any detrimental conduct in our football program," First-year coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement, "Once all of the facts come to light, if Jordan is found responsible for any misconduct, he will be disciplined according to team rules."

Alex Lewis announced Friday he planned to transfer to the University of Nebraska from CU. His father, Bill, played football at Nebraska.

"As for Alex Lewis, as of Friday he was off of the team when he did a media interview and announced that he is transferring to Nebraska. Since he is no longer a Colorado Buffalo, it will be up to Nebraska to decide what discipline he might face," MacIntyre said.

In April, CU announced senior Webb suffered a torn ACL during a practice drill and would be out for the entire 2013 season. He was named CU's starting quarterback August 15, 2012.
