Investigation Details:


     The Allen County Sheriff’s Department Warrants and Fugitive division arrested Robert Louis Harris, M/B/27, after he jumped from a second story window and attempted to flee.  Officer Scott Borton deployed his electronic control device (Taser), which immediately incapacitated Mr. Harris allowing him to be taken into custody and handcuffed without further resistance.  Officers were attempting to serve several active arrest warrants on Mr. Harris for Felony Parole Revocation, Resisting Law Enforcement, two counts of Contempt of Court and Criminal Trespassing.  Mr. Harris was booked into the Allen County Lock-Up on the outstanding warrants and a second charge of Resisting Law Enforcement.
