Former NFL Player Fired By Bowie State After Slamming Student Athlete

Posted:
 BOWIE, MD - A former NFL player has been fired from his volunteer football coaching job at Bowie State University. School police say that former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Charles Grant was dismissed from the position after TMZ Sports posted video of him body-slamming a student.

In the cell phone video, Grant can be overheard yelling and swearing at the student just moments before picking him up and slamming him to a gymnasium floor. Bowie police are investigating this as a possible crime.

Bowie State issued a statement saying that, "The Department of Athletics has zero tolerance of behavior that violates the University's core values and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes."

This is not Grant's first run in with the law. He was previously charged with involuntary manslaughter after a deadly shooting outside at a bar in Georgia. Those charges were eventually dropped, and he later pleaded to no contest to public fighting. Bowie State has not stated whether the alleged victim was a student at the University.
