Harris has been working with local authorities since the incident. According to a police news release, Harris says he was getting a ride home from a man and his girlfriend, when the man allegedly started assaulting Harris as the woman drove. Harris then says he blacked out and woke up on the side of the highway with $2,400 missing. While Harris initially declined to be taken to the hospital, he was later admitted to the ICU to receive treatment for his injuries.
