Security guard's tweets after QB Jayru Campbell body slam incident

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Nearly two weeks after star quarterback Jayru Campbell is believed to have body slammed a security guard, explicit tweets sent from that security guard have surfaced. While a friend defends him, Cass Tech students here say the guard was in the wrong.

In a conversation on January 23, a security guard who doesn't want to be named tweeted out:

"Slam me when i'm not looking, lol, pussy. Hit me when i'm looking at you...bet i whoop your ass. I got dropped and got right back up!"

When asked what happened, his response was:

"Pussy grabbed ... up when i wasn't looking. He then took off when I tried to snatch him up"

Seeing these for the first time Monday, the assistant superintendent of the Detroit Public School says the security guard has been removed during the investigation. The Twitter account has since been deleted and the guard told FOX 2 Monday he cannot comment on the tweets.

Dominique Marshall, saying he is a close friend of the guard's, speaks on behalf of him.

"[The tweets don't] really justify the type of person he is. He's a caring person. He cares about other people. ... I think he was more so embarrassment, just from the simple fact that how, frankly, it got out there, how it happened, where it happened," says Marshall.

Angry with those tweets, some students tell FOX 2's Erika Erickson the security guard abused his authority. One says he called some of the students "ugly."

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says the case is still on the review. Campbell could face assault and battery charges. A decision could be made within the next few days.
