DETROIT, MI — Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Tuesday charged 17-year-old Michigan State football recruit Jayru D. Campbell with two adult felonies for body-slamming a Cass Technical High School bodyguard Jan. 22.
“It doesn’t matter how fast you run … the law applies to everyone,” said Worthy at a press announcement at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
In a video of the altercation that has spread on YouTube, it appears Campbell makes the first contact with the shove of the security guard but, quickly, both lock arms in a brief struggle that ends with the guard on the floor.
This is not the first time that Campbell has made news for his physical outbursts. In November, Campbell was suspended for the opening game of the upcoming 2014 season after punching a Detroit Catholic Central player in the handshake line following Cass Tech’s 28-0 loss in the Division 1 state semifinals.
