On 11/23/17 at 0225 hours, Harrisburg Police officers were assisting to clear out the large crowds that had come out to celebrate Thanksgiving Eve. Officers encountered Kenneth Deavers as the bars were letting out and instructed him leave the area. Deavers made derogatory statements to the officer who once again instructed Deavers to leave the area. Deavers ignored the officer’s instructions and was attempting to go back into the crowd. Officers stopped Deavers who then swung his arm in an attempt to strike the officer. Deavers was taken to the ground where he resisted arrest but ultimately was handcuffed. Deavers was transported to booking and released on a summons.
