DETROIT – According to reports, Detroit Cass Tech quarterback Jayru Campbell was released from Jail on Friday and is now back in police custody after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

The alleged assault is said to have taken place at Cass Tech high school on Friday afternoon during a football game at the school.

According to multiple news outlets, Campbell tried to take the girl’s cell phone, which resulted in him allegedly pushing her to the ground. Campbell then read through her text messages and then allegedly choked and hit her, leaving her with a bruise under her eye according to WDIV Channel 4.

Campbell was previously serving a jail sentence for assaulting a school security guard in January, where he picked up and slammed the security guard to the floor at Cass Tech high school.

According to WXYZ Channel 7, Campbell was arraigned on Saturday on three charges. WXYZ said that the charges were Robbery Not Armed, Assault with Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm and misdemeanor Domestic Violence Assault and Battery.

Campbell, who is beginning his senior year at Cass Tech, led the Technicians to back-to-back Division 1 state championships in his freshman and sophomore seasons.
