Eastern Kentucky linebacker Michael Harris was reportedly issued a felony charge of assault and three misdemeanors after video of him bodyslamming a police officer emerged.

TMZ Sports reported the news, noting court records said the misdemeanors were disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Police footage of the officers interacting with him shows a heated exchange that turned physical. At one point, Harris picked up one of the police officers and threw him to the ground.

TMZ Sports noted the officer avoided serious injury.

Police, who arrived at the scene when a woman called and said Harris was being "aggressive" and "did not seem to be 'all there,'" then took the linebacker to the hospital, where he was sedated before taken to jail.
