Prep football star gets deal in body-slamming case
Question of the Day
DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit high school football star caught on video body-slamming a school security guard admitted to the incident on Friday as part of a plea deal that could leave him with a clean record.
Jayru Campbell, a 17-year-old who wants to play at Michigan State, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in Wayne County Circuit Court. A felony charge was dismissed, and his record could be expunged if he attends anger management classes and gets counseling.
Judge Tim Kenny said Campbell qualified for the deal under a Michigan law that covers teens with an otherwise clean record. But he told the teen: “I want you to know it doesn’t have anything to do with you being a good athlete.”
Campbell admitted that he slammed a security officer head-first to the ground at Cass Technical High School on Jan. 22 after refusing to pull a hood off his head. The confrontation was recorded on video.
He must write an apology to the guard and pay any medical bills. He is scheduled to return to court May 30.
Campbell now plans to “have the best possible life he can,” defense attorney Jeffrey Edison said after the hearing.
