Alarming video released Tuesday shows defensive tackle Malik McDowell allegedly attacking a Michigan police officer and wrestling him for his stun gun during a routine traffic stop in February.
The video, obtained by TMZ Sports, appears to show McDowell, 23, exchanging words with a Lathrup Village police officer outside a local gas station. The officer can be heard repeatedly telling McDowell to “have a seat in your car.”
The free agent and former Michigan State defensive tackle was pulled over after authorities reportedly witnessed his jeep spinning out while speeding.
McDowell can be heard continuing to refuse the officer’s request before eventually getting into the rear seat of the car. He then refuses to provide his license and instead requests to speak to the officer’s “supervisor.”
