Jayru Campbell charged as lawyer faults police response to Christmas incident

Former Cass Tech and college football player Jayru Campbell pleaded not guilty Wednesday to multiple felony charges of assault with a dangerous weapon following an altercation with police officers at an Auburn Hills hospital on Christmas Day.

During the hearing in Oakland County District Court on Wednesday, the former Ferris State University quarterback was arraigned on several felony and misdemeanor charges, which all stem from a Christmas Day incident at Havenwyck Hospital that was livestreamed on Campbell’s Facebook page.

Campbell’s attorney Jeffrey McCarty shed light in court on the circumstances that led to the arrest.

Campbell appeared in Rochester Hills district court over video from the Oakland County Jail, where has been held since his arrest at the psychiatric facility in Auburn Hills on Sunday. Among the misdemeanors he was charged with being trespassing and disturbing the peace.
