The victim informed her parents who reported the incident to school administrators.

Deavonne Harris:


The female student reported to officials that the choking incident escalated out of verbal exchange about where she and Harris were sitting on the bus.  Harris grew upset because he couldn’t get his seat.

Harris was arrested by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and charged with assault on a female (misdemeanor).  Under a secured $500 bond, Harris was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center before bonding out.
