Charles Grant was a two-year starter at Georgia on defense and a fill-in at fullback.

Former Georgia defensive captain Charles Grant was dismissed from his job as a linebackers coach at Maryland’s Bowie State University for reportedly body slamming a student.

Video of the incident surfaced on TMZ Sports, which reports it shows Grant arguing with another male. The argument blisters into a shoving match and turns violent when Grant picks up the man and slams him onto a gym floor, according to TMZ’s account. The footage shows a third party entering the picture to break up the fight.

Grant had been at Bowie State for two seasons. He was a first-round NFL Draft pick out of Georgia in 2002, winning a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints in 2009.

In 2010, Grant pleaded guilty to a charge of public affray after being indicted on a charge of involuntary manslaughter following a 2008 fight that turned deadly outside a nightclub in Blakely, Ga.
