Former Michigan State football All American Malik McDowell is shown on a new video released today assaulting a police officer. The February incident shows the 6’6″, 300 lb man even try and take an officers taser.
The beginning of the video is on a traffic stop with a Lathrup Village police officer. The officer had just witnessed McDowell spin out in his vehicle and made a traffic stop. McDowell immediately begins to ask for supervisor at the beginning of the encounter, and it all goes down hill from there.
McDowell choses to walk away from the officer on the stop and then the officer attempts to detain him. The fight begins and in the process McDowell reaches for a taser and it was reported he reached for a second responding officer’s taser as well.
McDowell was charged with two counts of felony assault and resisting arrest, one misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated and a misdemeanor charge of driving on a suspended license.
McDowell was released from the Seahawks shortly after this incident and is now a free agent. Let’s hope nobody decides to sign this guy.
