Harris claimed he had taken prescription drugs that same morning and cops arrested him after he refused a sobriety test, according to TMZ.
Harris had been previously arrested in 2019 on charges of felony DUI and drug possession. The reality TV star reportedly refused to identify himself to cops after being pulled over. Harris took off in his RV and led police on a chase. Authorities claimed they found a half ounce of heroin and other paraphernalia at the time of the arrest. He was later sentenced to 18 months in jail.
