Jayru Campbell, a Detroit Cass Tech football star who was formerly committed to Michigan State University, is arrested again after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Campbell Earlier This Year
Last January, Campbell body slammed a Cass Tech High security officer, after the officer had him sent to the office for not taking off his hood. Campbell was originally going play football for Michigan State University in 2015, however he announced earlier this year he will no longer be committed to Michigan. Campbell lead Cass Tech to two state titles in Division 1 in 2011 and 2012.
2. Campbell Accepted a Plea Deal For His Assault
Campbell was able to avoid at least 10 years in state prison on a felony charge, by taking a plea bargain and following specific guidelines set out by his judge, after his assault on the Cass Tech security guard. Campbell was required to take psychological counseling and anger management, pay restitution to the guard for injuries and write an apology to be read in court. If Campbell met these conditions, the assault could have been wiped from his record.
3. Campbell Arrested Same Day He Was Released
The same day Campbell was released after serving 57 days in jail for his assault, he is now back is jail for his alleged attack on his girlfriend, after visiting Cass Tech.
