Detroit Cass Tech QB Jayru Campbell hits girlfriend, gets put behind bars once again

Jayru Campbell led Detroit Cass Tech to state titles in 2011 and 2012. However, his violent habits are catching up with him. 

Jayru Campbell led Detroit Cass Tech to state titles in 2011 and 2012. However, his violent habits are catching up with him. 

Some guys never learn. Sadly, that seems to be the case with Jayru Campbell, who's back in police custody after just being released from jail. 

In January, the Detroit Cass Tech star QB viciously body-slammed a school security guard. The horrifying incident was caught on tape, all but ensuring that he wouldn't be joining Michigan State's 2015 class, to which he pledged prior to assaulting the guard.

This past May, he was sentenced to 60 days in Wayne County jail and ordered to pay restitution. 

OK. Lesson learned, right? 

Nope. 

Upon his release Friday, Campbell, according to a report from CBS Detroit, struck his girlfriend after she refused him access to text messages on her cell phone. He's back in police custody, where he belongs, and awaits formal charges. 

The report stated that the girl suffered a bruise around her eye. 

However, and this is the kicker, Tech coach Thomas Wilcher says he doesn't know if Campbell will miss any games this year. I can answer that one: Yes. He's done. Kick him off the team and disassociate. I'm all for second chances, and even thirds and fourths in some cases. 

But this kid doesn't get it.

Not only does he have little respect for authority, but he seems to think it's OK to manhandle a woman. His childish temper and violent demeanor will land him in much more trouble one of these days. It's one thing to make mistakes. Everyone slips now and then. But repeated violent offenses?

Can't give him much on that. 

Turn it around, Jayru. Forget football. YOUR life depends on it.  

Campbell tweeted this prior to serving part of his 60-day sentence, which was shortened for reasons not yet known.
