This video – a Real World Police exclusive – is a new supplement to a series of four surveillance and body worn camera videos from this incident. That series was published on this channel in late-April 2019.
This dash cam video has not been published elsewhere prior.
On Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at approximately 4:43 am, Henry County Police Department officers were dispatched to the Eagles Landing Country Club located at 100 Eagles Landing Way in McDonough, Georgia, in reference to a male subject later identified as Clifford Harris (“T.I.”) yelling at the front gate security guard because he would not let him in. To his own house. Dispatch advised responding officers that they could hear Mr. Harris yelling through the phone.
On arrival officers met with Mr. Harris and with his friend, Marquinarius Holmes. When asked what was the problem, Mr. Harris stated that when he pulled up to the guard shack, he observed the guard – Euwan James – sleeping. This can clearly be seen in the first of the four videos previously published. When Mr. Harris woke the guard, Harris asked to be let in, but the guard refused, claiming that he did not know who T.I. was… even after he identified himself and his wife Tiny called the guard shack.
James finally opened the gate and allowed T.I. in, but T.I. was less than thrilled with the guard’s guarding and he requested the guard’s name. Surprisingly, James refused to identify himself to Harris, who grew more irate before jumping back in his swank ride and driving home — only to walk back for another attempt at getting the guard’s name. No dice the second time around, either, as instead of getting the guard’s name, Harris got arrested.
When a responding officer spoke with the guard (who is referred to in the report as “Officer James”), James is *reported by the officer* as having provided the following information:
When Harris pulled up James asked Harris for his name and where was he going. Harris replied, “Harris, hook me up!”* James did not recognize Harris and did not let him in the gate. In response, stated James, Harris started to use profanity, yelling at him to open the gate. James then opened the gate and let him inside the neighborhood. James further stated that Harris subsequently walked back to the gate and was threatening him, and added that Mr. Holmes had arrived after Mr. Harris.
When asked for specifics of the kind of threats Harris had made, James is reported as having stated that Harris asked him to “come outside so they can deal with it,” however James wrote on his statement that Harris stated “come outside so we can deal with this man to man,” and “Let go in the street.” (It’s not clear that Harris said any either of those two sentences.) James stated he felt threatened by Harris because he told him that he would come back and he did. The guard added that he “did not know what Harris was going to do.” James’ supervisor Andrea Stone advised she witnessed Harris yelling at James.
This is the complete dash camera footage from the police car driven by Officer N. Gibbs of Henry County Police Department.
*The recording seems to clearly indicate that T.I. said, “Harris, look me up,” — and not “Harris, hook me up.”
