42-year-old Harvey Bush was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, possession of cocaine with intent, and paraphernalia when he snatched and twisted a detective’s testicles as he was being detained for a business transaction.
On August 5th, crime scene detectives were monitoring the Tiger Market on 2664 Smith Spring Road in Hermitage. According to an affidavit, the detectives witnessed a transaction occur through the window of Harvey Bush’s Mercedes C230. Investigation showed that the owner of the vehicle had two outstanding warrants. When the officers were placing Bush in custody, he attempted to escape, seizing Officer Joseph Patricio by his testicles.
Bush yanked and twisted the officer’s male parts leaving lacerations. A search of the vehicle produced 4 grams of cocaine in two separate containers, a digital scale, a meth pipe, and sandwich bags. The report also explains that Bush had $302 in small bills on his person and this was determined to be supportive of drug sales.
Harvey Bush was arrested and charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, possession of cocaine with intent, and drug paraphernalia. He is jailed in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
