Eastern Kentucky LB Michael Harris Body Slams Cop”

Harris is being charged with disorderly conduct and felony assault of a police officer, after lifting one off the ground as police attempted to handcuff him.

The incident was caught on video.

A statement offered to WBNS illustrated Eastern Kentuck University's decision to suspend Harris. Harris is now a part of the Eastern Kentucky University and is listed a redshirt sophomore on the college football roster.

Assistant Athletics Director for Communications and Branding Kevin Britton said in a statement, "EKU can not comment further on current team status or potential disciplinary action related to a specific student-athlete due to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)".

"Understanding that details of the incident are still under investigation, and, abiding by FERPA laws and regulations, we must respect the privacy of our students".

Redshirt sophomore Michael Harris was confronted by police Monday when officers responded to a disturbance at a Grove City business "involving an aggressive man" who refused to leave, the New York Post reported.

According to KFSN-TV, Harris would not calm down and repeatedly told officers to take him to jail.

Harris - as a redshirt freshman at Auburn past year - was a four-star recruit from Tucker, Georgia, and was the 15th-ranked outside linebacker according to ESPN.

ESPN reports that Lt. Eric Scott with Grove City Police Department said "nobody was hurt" and that one of the officers who was there said, "I can not believe the strength this man had".

In the video, Harris pulls away and walks toward his vehicle. Harris started rambling and tried to explain what he was doing, but kept giving different answers.
