Alvin Harrison, 47, who has visited Bankers Casino during the weekend, is facing multiple charges after attacking a security guard. According to the local news, Harrison assaulted the casino’s security guard and after that headbutted a police officer who arrived at the scene.
Everything started when the guard asked Harrison to leave the casino. Harrison first sprayed the guard with champagne and then started threatening and yelling. The report says:
“Harrison then asked the guard if he wanted to get into a fight. He then swung the bottle of champagne at the guard. Moments later, he allegedly threatened to come back to the casino with a firearm and shoot the guard.”
Harrison and his companion left the property after attacking the guard. The report states:
“Salinas police were contacted by casino security. The officers searched the area near the casino, and soon located Harrison and the second person. When trying to apprehend Harrison, he got into a struggle with officers. He was handcuffed and an officer began placing him into a patrol car.”
The report also says that Harrison headbutted the officer before he was put under control. After the incident, the assailant was taken to the Monterey County Jail. Although he was released from custody earlier this week, Harrison was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, making criminal threats, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest.
If convicted, he could face many years in prison.
