According to Lacey Crisp of CBS 10, officers were responding to a local business’ complaint of “a disturbance with an aggressive man who did not work there and wouldn’t leave.” When officers arrived to the scene, they encountered an apparently intoxicated Harris. He lunged at the officers before picking one of them up and body-slamming him to the ground.

The officers were eventually able to get Harris in handcuffs. Crisp’s article notes that, per court records, officers believed Harris did not know where he was or know anyone in the area.

The report states that the officer was not injured. Harris is a redshirt sophomore at EKU.
