Detroit — Detroit Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell, who was arrested Wednesday for allegedly body slamming a high school security guard, was expected to be released from custody Friday, the prosecutor’s office said.
Campell was arrested the day a video surfaced showing what appeared to be a student body-slamming the guard inside the school. Another video shows the student and the security guard having a confrontation leading up to the incident.
“We are continuing to review the paperwork from the Detroit Public Schools Police on the case,” Maria Miller, spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, said earlier Friday. “We expect that the suspect will be released from custody sometime later today. There is no further information that will be given on the matter today.’’
Detroit Public School officials say Campbell was accused of assault and battery for an incident that occurred inside the school during dismissal time.
School officials also are investigating whetherCampbell violated school policy and whether there will be disciplinary action taken if he did.
Campbell, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds, led Cass Tech to back-to-back Division 1 state championships in football in 2011 and 2012.
Campbell has verbally committed to Michigan State for its 2015 class.
