A drunken New Smyrna Beach bicyclist whose drive-through order at Taco Bell was rejected because he wasn’t in a car refused to leave the restaurant then tussled with police, according to an arrest report.
According to the report, Taco Bell workers called police at 3:10 a.m. Sunday after Harris and a woman, both intoxicated, would not leave the restaurant at 1860 State Road 44 in New Smyrna Beach.
Police found Harris on a bicycle by the menu speaker, a report states.
Aron Tobler, the employee, said he refused service to Harris and Sarah Haliburton because “they placed an order on bicycles” in the drive through window, the report states. Haliburton was not charged.
Police said Harris got to the restaurant after it closed at 3 a.m.
As police were asking Harris to leave, they spotted a red Swiss Army knife on Harris’ belt loop and tried to reach for it. Harris grabbed the officer’s wrist and Harris was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed. Harris suffered a scraped forehead, police said.
