Police: Michigan State recruit Jayru Campbell body-slammed security guard (VIDEO)

Local Detroit high school football star Jayru Campbell, a four-star quarterback committed to play at Michigan State, is in jail on charges related to his body slamming of a school security guard today. Cell phone video of Wednesday's incident appears to support the charge.

Campbell, a junior, earned a school suspension in November for punching an opposing player in the postgame handshake line. He led Cass Tech previously to two straight state championships.

The vicious assault, caught on video on one student’s cell phone, seems to show Campbell, hoisting the guard and slamming him on his head in a crowded hallway. Some students could be heard pleading with the student to delete the video.

It quickly went viral, however, after Diehard Sports put it on YouTube despite the student deleting it some hours ago.

It’s unclear as to whether coaches and administrators at Michigan State — to which Campbell has committed on a full scholarship for 2015 — have seen the video.

It’s hard to tell by the video exactly who is involved, but multiple students have confirmed that Campbell was the aggressor, and WXYZ is reporting that his high school football coach confirmed that Campbell got in trouble on Wednesday.

Campbell was suspended in Nov. of 2013 for punching a Detroit Catholic Central player in the handshake line following Cass Tech's State Championship loss.(Video below)
