community news, Michael Harris: Eastern Kentucky LB arrest, nearly body slams police

Eastern Kentucky linebacker Michael Harris was arrested earlier this week after nearly body-slamming a police officer in Grove City, Ohio to the pavement. Harris is facing a felony assault charge, per police reports, as well as misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, obstructing official business and disorderly conduct while intoxicated.

Harris has been suspended from the team and all football related activities, according to a statement Thursday afternoon from EKU to ESPN. Harris was a redshirt freshman at Auburn last year, playing in 11 games. He transferred from Auburn last month.

In a dash-cam video recorded from a police car, Harris appears to confront one officer while another stands by. After the two officers engage physically with Harris, the 6-foot-3, 245-pound Harris can be seen grabbing one of the male officers around the waist and lifting him up above his shoulders, before falling on top of the officer.
