The lesson is: don't do things.

Because things can lead to stuff. And from there it's a short leap to kerfuffle. Nobody wants a kerfuffle.

Larry Harris arrested:

King stopped Harris shortly after 10 p.m. in the 800 block of West Morgan Street near downtown. The assistant coach was going 41 miles per hour in a 25 mph zone in his 2006 Cadlillac Escalade, Sughrue said.

King repeatedly asked Harris for his license and vehicle registration, but Harris refused to hand them over, Sughrue said. King then placed Harris under arrest and eventually used the pepper spray.

Update: Harris has filed a complaint with the RPD:

An assistant basketball coach at North Carolina State University filed a complaint against a city police officer on Thursday. That comes one day after being arrested on a misdemeanor charge of resisting an officer.

Lee Turner is representing North Carolina State assistant coach Larry Harris. Turner says the complaint accuses officer R.W. King of assault, excessive force and conduct unbecoming an officer.
