Eastern Kentucky LB Bodyslams Cop During Insane Traffic Stop (VIDEO)
A college football player will likely never play for the program again after he picked up a cop and body-slammed him during an arrest that took place this week in Ohio.
TMZ got hold of the insane footage where they state cops were called by a woman who stated Michael Harris, an Eastern Kentucky University linebacker, was acting very erratic.
“In the call, according to police docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman claimed 19-year-old Harris was being “aggressive” and “did not seem to be ‘all there.'”
When officers arrived on the scene … things took a horrible turn — because cops say after they confronted Harris, it got violent.
Eventually, cops say they were able to subdue the football player … but instead of taking him directly to jail, they sent him to the hospital to get checked out.
Cops claim he remained aggressive there … so he was sedated by medical personnel before he was eventually hauled off to jail.”
Cops would eventually search the vehicle of the he 6-foot-3, 245-pound linebacker and find pills and a digital scale that is “consistent with drug use.”
Harris was hit with a felony charge of assault for the incident, as well as three misdemeanor charges — disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing officials business.
He had just transferred to Eastern Kentucky this week, with head coach Walt Wells saying, “He brings size, explosiveness and speed to the inside linebacker position. He is a physical player.”
