Man pleads not guilty to high-speed chase that killed MPD Officer Irvine
The attorney for 28-year-old Ladell William Harrison made the not guilty pleas on his behalf during a brief hearing Friday. The charges against Harrison include eluding police, resulting in death and injuries. He also faces several drug charges.
Prosecutors say in charging documents that Harrison fled from police when they tried to initiate a traffic stop on June 7. Police lost control of their squad car, which rolled several times before landing on its roof. The officer killed in the crash was 23-year-old Charles Irvine Jr., who was the passenger in the car. His partner suffered a concussion and broken ribs.
