A former USC wide receiver was arrested earlier this week. According to a report from TMZ, Joseph Lewis was arrested for felony domestic violence in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

It's the second arrest for Lewis this year. He was arrested earlier this year on a separate alleged domestic violence in February.

Lewis was suspended from all football-related activities while the school investigated. He ultimately plead no-contest and received 36 months probation.

However, after an alleged second offense, Lewis could be in big trouble. His bail has been set for $100,000.

TMZ recounted the details of the alleged incident.

We're told there was a physical altercation between Lewis and a woman at home ... and the woman fled to a nearby location, called police and Lewis was later arrested back at the house.

Lewis was one of the top recruits coming out of high school in 2017. The former Trojan was a five-star recruit, ranked No. 31 in the nation out of Los Angeles.

He was the No. 4 wide receiver in the class. Lewis saw action in 11 games as a true freshman, racking up four catches for 39 yards.
