Malik McDowell is in trouble again. This time there’s wild video showing the former Michigan State standout and NFL bust with the Seattle Seahawks fighting with a police officer in a convenience store after being hit with a Taser.

TMZ obtained video that shows the February incident after McDowell was pulled over in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Michigan.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to the report, an officer pulled McDowell over after he saw his Jeep speeding and then spinning out.

The video shows the police officer attempting several times to get McDowell to cooperate, asking for McDowell’s license. The defiant former football player kept demanding to speak with a supervisor and did not obey the officer’s demands.

The situation escalated when McDowell entered a convenience store instead of remaining seated in his car, as the officer requested. The officer was eventually forced to use a Taser on McDowell.
