Radio host charged on assault

| 11/06/2014

(CNS): Local radio host Austin Harris (41) has been charged with common assault in connection with an incident at a house party in Governor’s Harbour earlier this year. The radio personality on Rooster’s popular morning talk show, Crosstalk, was charged Tuesday and bailed by police to appear in court on 24 June. Harris was temporarily removed from the radio waves in the wake of his arrest in connection with the alleged attack on a female friend, and replaced by Ellio Solomon. However, Randy Merren, the owner of Hurley’s Entertainment, which broadcasts Rooster, confirmed Wednesday morning that he was standing by his host and that Harris would remain on air.

Harris was arrested in March after he went to the police station following reports made that he had allegedly hit a woman at a social gathering at a private home on 9 March, which turned into a much larger fracas as people at the party intervened and reportedly pulled Harris from his alleged victim.
