Jayru Campbell has been told that 'the law applies to everyone' in court today, as criminal charges were today announced against the Cass Tech QB for his bodyslam on a school security guard last month.
Campbell is verbally committed to Michigan State for 2015, but those commitments are non-binding until a letter of intent is signed.
But the promising QB has today been officially charged with the intent to do great bodily harm, and aggravated assault against the 23-year-old guard that he bodyslammed last month at his high-school.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy explained, “The officer sustained a facial injury and an open wound to the head,” a press release from her office said. The injured officer was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
“My message is this: It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, how fast you can run, how far you can throw a football, what instrument you play,” Worthy said. “The law applies to everyone.”
It's understood that the guard asked Campbell to remove his hood several times whilst on school premises, and when the QB refused, he asked him to report to the office.
Worthy explained that she saw enough evidence to make charges and expects Campbell to be arraigned Wednesday.
