He was fired from his position as a Benton County deputy on Wednesday after Rogers police informed the sheriff’s office about an impending warrant for Harrison.
Harrison was not on the job at the time of the incident, nor is the incident connected to his employment, according to a Benton County Sheriff’s Office press release.
Rogers police were called to a Rogers home on Monday after a woman, Kimberly Scott, said she awoke to find Harrison, her step-father, naked in her bed touching her, according to the incident report. Scott, said she has been creeped out by Harrison for a while.
