Things have gotten to a rocky start after leaving the SEC for former 4-star Auburn signee Michael Harris. Recently transferring out of the Tigers' program to join Eastern Kentucky, Harris is in some serious trouble with the law after police footage has shown him body-slamming a police officer to the ground as if the man in uniform was a Georgia running back.

Per local reports, police were originally called to the scene because Harris refused to leave a local business.

During a traffic stop in Grandview Heights, Ohio shortly after, Harris then got into it with the policemen on hand, which led to a scuffle. Moments later, Harris picked up one of the cops and dropped him to the cement.

The 19-year-old signed with Auburn as a member of the 2018 class when he was ranked as the No. 15 LB in the country. He held additional offers from Alabama, Georgia, Florida and many others.

Last season for Gus Malzahn, he appeared in 11 games for the Tigers. Harris had just transferred to EKU, but now has legal issues to deal with before spring practice rolls around.
