Moment college football player slams officer onto concrete during heated altercation

An altercation between a college football player and OH police officers Monday during a traffic stop ended up with the man slamming one of the officers, dashcam video shows.

Michael Harris is accused of body-slamming a Grove City Police Officer during an arrest.

Officers responding to the scene believed that Harris was intoxicated and did not know where he was. As a Grove City police cruiser pulls up, the dashcam video shows Harris and another officer talking to each other.

It took three officers to subdue Harris, who was eventually arrested and charged with one felony count of assault, and misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct while intoxicated, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest.

Harris swatted the officer's hand away, which resulted in placing Harris under arrest.

When Harris approaches the officer again, the officer grabs Harris and shoves him back as his partner assist in trying to detain him. He then can be seen lifting one of the officers up and bringing him to the ground.

During the scuffle, the football player picks the officer up and slams him to the ground.
