There's just no break for Detroit sports. If somebody isn't getting pulled over with marijuana in their car at four in the morning, then somebody is getting arraigned for an incident that went under the radar over a month ago. That is referring to Michigan Wolverines senior defensive tackle Will Campbell, who, according to AnnArbor.com, was arraigned on Thursday by a Washtenaw County magistrate on a felony charge of malicious destruction of property, as well as a misdemeanor for the same thing.
According to the report, it stems from an incident on April 7, but there are no actual details of the incident at the moment. The felony charge refers to destruction or damage of property worth more than $1,000, but less than $20,000, while the misdemeanor charge refers to the same thing but property that is worth more than $200 but less than $1,000.
The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $2,000 fine.
Campbell is projected to be a starter at defensive tackle for the Wolverines, after a few disappointing seasons with the school. He hasn't quite lived up to his potential, but has been a constant during this offseason and his name has been mentioned more than once in praise by the coaching staff.
It's all up-in-the-air as to how this will affect those plans, as the school, nor Campbell's attorney, have released statements. As noted, there's no actual details on what happened so it's hard to even project what might happen with all of this.
