WARNER ROBINS -- A Bonaire man is accused of slashing tires of police vehicles at the city’s Law Enforcement Center some time after his release on bond from charges of drunken driving and driving unlicensed.

Stephen Christopher Harrison, 29, was charged Saturday with 11 felony counts of interference with government property for slashing the tires of 11 police vehicles parked at the LEC, said Tabitha Clark, public information officer for Warner Robins police.

He also was charged with one count of criminal trespass/damage for allegedly slashing the personal vehicle of an LEC employee and one count of criminal trespass/entry for allegedly climbing over the LEC gate to slash the tires, Clark said.

Harrison had been arrested Friday by Warner Robins police on the misdemeanor driving charges and processed at 5:52 p.m., Clark said. The time of his release was not immediately known.

It was also unclear how much time passed between his release from the LEC on the misdemeanor charges and when the tires were slashed. The damage was discovered about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Clark said.

The LEC is equipped with video surveillance cameras.

Clark said she’s not privy to whether the incident was captured on video, because the incident is under investigation.

Harrison was booked at the Houston County jail on the felony charges at 2:38 p.m. Saturday and released at 6:46 p.m. Sunday on a $29,800 bond, according to online records.
