Jayru Campbell has been arrested and charged after police say he threatened staff at an Auburn Hills hospital and police while holding his 2-year-old daughter. The former Cass Tech and Ferris State football star was arraigned Wednesday on fourth-degree child abuse, three counts of felonious assault on a police officer, disturbing the peace and trespassing, according to reports.
Campbell was given a $30,000 cash bond.
The former standout high school and college football quarterback was actually live-streaming a tense skirmish with police on social media. The 26-year-old could be seen shirtless and holding his daughter in his arms.
Campbell is confronted by four armed police officers, one of whom is holding a ballistic shield that says “Police AHPD.” He says, among other things, “Let’s do it,” and later, “Y’all let me down enough” and “I’m doing it today for everything, bro.”
One of the armed officers replies: “We don’t want you to kill anybody, man.” Campbell shouts back, “You’ve got the gun in your hand,” and flashes a pair of blue-handled scissors. He threatens to harm the officers, saying, “Trust me, trust me!” Later he says he’s “pissed off” about the “system,” and tells them to “drop your gun.”
Police say after some time, Campbell eventually put down the scissors and released his daughter before he was taken into custody.
“I commend the actions of our officers, who were on scene during this very dynamic situation,” Auburn Hills Police Chief Ryan Gagnon said in a statement. “The officers maintained their composure and used time and space, which allowed them to de-escalate the situation and negotiate with the person. We are grateful for the outcome and that no one was injured during this incident.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
