Detroit high school quarterback Jayru Campbell is already in a whole host of trouble. But more stories are emerging of other transgressions made by the Michigan State commit. 

The Cass Tech football star is accused of slamming a school security officer head first into the ground last month was arraigned on assault charges Tuesday morning in Detroit.

But according to WXYZ Detroit, this isn't the first time that Campbell has assaulted someone in the school. From the piece by Kimberley Craig:

"A month before Jayru Campbell body slammed a school security guard in the halls of Detroit's Cass Tech High School, the star quarterback body slammed a fellow student, according to a source familiar with the case.

It's unclear if school administrators or district officials ever notified police of that alleged assault on the student that we're told took place in December. District officials declined to comment, citing privacy laws."

If true, this revelation won't do Campbell's character any favours in court at all. In November, Campbell was suspended for punching a football player on an opposing team, and thus has previous of acting out. 

Campbell has been charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, a felony, and aggravated assault, a misdemeanour, following the release of a video that went viral of the 17 year old lifting the guard above his head and slamming him into the ground.

The case will carry on for a few more weeks, but this is just another twist to the tale for a young man who could be set to lose his scholarship offer.
