Harris also had an active capias out of Kent County Court of Common Pleas for failure to appear for cas review. Both were arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 7.

Harris was given a $2,500 unsecured bond for the assault charge but was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $600 secured bond for the capias.
