Man live streams interaction while being detained for odor of marijuana, alcohol and “raising hell”

47-year-old Jeffery Harney was charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest when Officer Alquzweeni detained him after he smelled marijuana and alcohol. In a Facebook live video, Harney can be heard demanding the reason for his arrest.

On May 19th, Clarksville Police Officer Alquzweeni contacted Jeffery Harney at 200 Legion Street when he noted the strong smell of marijuana and alcohol. Harney was drinking alcohol out of a plastic bottle and would not give it to the officer. He was also pulling away and attempting to walk off when he was being detained. According to the affidavit, Jeffrey Harney was “raising hell and annoying” the public.

Harney started recording the interaction on Facebook live. The video is long and hard to understand but at 4:20 the officer can be heard saying “you have no rights” and telling Harney he’s being detained because he’s “been smoking weed.” Harney incessantly demands to see a supervisor and threatens to “whoop” the officer’s “ass.” At 14:00 Harney states “He thinks this a video game. This is not Grand Theft Auto.”

Jeffrey Harney was arrested and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $1,500 bond.
