An altercation between a college football player and Ohio police officers Monday during a traffic stop ended up with the man slamming one of the officers, dashcam video shows.
Michael Harris, a linebacker for Eastern Kentucky University, was seen on the video in a parking lot near what appeared to be his SUV. As a Grove City police cruiser pulled up, the dashcam video showed Harris and another officer talking to each other.
Harris at one point put his hands up while being patted down. More words were exchanged and one officer appeared to put one of his hands on the back of the player’s head. Harris then tried to get back into the vehicle, but was pushed away and officers tried to arrest the man.
