Police Beating Victim Arrested on Probation Violation

On Wednesday Dec. 2, Alexander Harrelson, 28, was arrested for violating his probation on “disorderly conduct with menacing,” from his previous arrest on Sept. 1. 

Harrelson made headlines in early September for being the subject of a downtown business’ surveillance video, in which he held his hands above his head before being beaten by Cottage Grove police officers. In the incident on Sept. 1, he lost two teeth and left the scene with a bloodied face. Prior to his arrest, Harrelson was seen swinging a sword outside The Bookmine.
