Detroit Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell is expected to be charged with assaulting a school security guard, according to online court documents obtained by The Detroit News on Monday.
A warrant, filed in 36th District Court, has been recommended against Campbell and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy will announce whether charges will be filed against the teen during a news conference Tuesday at her office at 2 p.m.
The charges are Assault with Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm less Than Murder and Assault — Aggravated, according to the documents.
Worthy’s statement announcing the news conference did not mention Campbell, 17, by name but said the incident occurred Jan. 22, the same day Campbell was accused of “assault and battery based on an incident that took place inside the school at dismissal time,” according to Assistant Superintendent Steven Wasko.
That day, a video also appeared online that showed an apparent student at the school body slamming a security guard.
Campbell, 6-3 and 190 pounds, led Cass Tech to back-to-back Division 1 state championships in 2011 and 2012 and is verbally committed to Michigan State for its 2015 class.
He was suspended from school for three to five days in November and the first game of next season after throwing a punch at a Detroit Catholic Central player following a loss to Catholic Central in the Division 1 semifinals.
