A jury has acquitted Cowboys rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis of domestic assault, the Associated Press reports.

The panel deliberated for slightly more than an hour Tuesday before finding the former Michigan star not guilty.

Lewis said he was “elated” with the verdict.

The 21-year-old Lewis was accused of assaulting his former girlfriend at his Ann Arbor apartment in March. Lewis didn’t testify, but the jury saw a video recording of a police interview in which he said he was asleep when the woman woke him to complain about finances, and he hit her with a pillow.

The woman testified he struck her in the face so hard she was forced into a wall.

    I recall from the military that a person being rudely woken isn’t responsible for their actions for thirty seconds. I don’t remember much about its origin but it made sense.
