A jail guard claims he was cut off in traffic so he followed the offending driver intending to make an arrest, but that driver was not the one who ended up behind bars, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. Eric Tyre Harris, 53, was charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the traffic stop he allegedly conducted. According to the arrest report, Harris was driving east in the 5000 block of W. Commercial Boulevard in Tamarac about 9:30 a.m. Oct. 3. He said a blue 2018 Ford Fusion cut him off.
