Gabriel Harris Arrested For Allegedly Fighting Cops In Taco Bell Drive-Thru

A man who attempted to order food from a drive-through window while on his bike ended up being driven in a police car straight to jail.

Gabriel Harris, 33, was arrested early Sunday morning after allegedly getting into a fight with police at a Taco Bell in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

Harris and a female friend rode up to the fast food restaurant on their bikes and attempted to order a meal at the drive-through window as it was closing.

When they were denied drive-through service because they were on bikes, Harris and his companion refused to leave, according to the Associated Press.

Employees called 911 and when officers arrived at the Taco Bell, Harris was still on his bike near the menu speaker.

As police were asking Harris to leave, one officer spotted a red Swiss Army knife on Harris’ belt loop and tried to reach for it.

The suspect allegedly grabbed the officer’s wrist, which led to a tussle. Harris was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed, suffering a scraped forehead in the process, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Harris was booked into Volusia County Branch Jail and charged with resisting arrest with violence. He was released on $1,000 bond, but only after posing for his mug shot with a big frown.

This isn't Harris' first run-in with the law.

The Miami Herald reports he was arrested for resisting an officer without violence in early August, but "appeared happier in his mugshot then."
