LITTLE RIVER-ACADEMY — Arrest affidavits indicated audio and video evidence showed three men allegedly turned on their vehicles’ windshield-mounted emergency red and blue lights when they boxed in London Harris’ car on June 5.

None of the three firefighters — John Burroughs of Temple, Joshua Adkins of Killeen and Jeremy Mercer of Heidenheimer — are Bell County law enforcement officers and aren’t authorized by the Texas Transportation Code to use emergency lights. The men were acting as bond apprehension agents, not firefighters, when they approached Harris.
