Former Michigan cornerback Nate Johnson pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery on Wednesday, according to MLive. Johnson was arrested on Sept. 30 and then kicked off the Michigan team early last month after he assaulted a woman he was dating.
Johnson, 19, was originally charged with domestic violence, but that charge was amended as part of a plea deal, according to the report.
The former Michigan player was arrested after he attacked the woman in an campus dorm early in the morning on Sept. 30. “I had a physical altercation with (a female) and it just got away from me,” Johnson said before a judge, according to MLive. “We got into a fight.”
Johnson was suspended from all team activities following the arrest and was then kicked off the team shortly after.
A sophomore in 2017, Johnson appeared in 3 games for Michigan as a wide receiver in the 2016 season. He transitioned to the defensive side of the ball this season, but he did not appear in any games.
