Chapel Hill Police Release 911 Call in Road Rage Incident

The Chapel Hill Police Department has released a 911 call made after a road rage incident involving Mikel Harris, who allegedly threatened a bagel shop employee at UNC Chapel Hill. Harris, 27, reportedly went to Alpine Bagels inside the Student Union on September 13 and threatened a supervisor with a gun. Prosecutors stated that Harris’ girlfriend had been fired from the bagel shop earlier that day. The incident led to a campus-wide lockdown, occurring just two weeks after a shooting on campus resulted in the death of a faculty member.

According to the police, Harris was also the suspect in a previous road rage incident where he allegedly waved a bat at someone. The 911 call made by the victim in that incident has now been released. The caller reported that Harris, driving a white four-door sedan, cut him off and he yelled “Loser” at him. The caller believed Harris returned and confronted him in a mini mart parking lot, brandishing a baseball bat and verbally threatening him. The caller explained that his hand was in his pocket, where his money was, but Harris may have mistaken it for a gun. Harris then allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened the caller, who denied having a gun.

Harris has been charged with assault, communicating threats, gun possession on educational property, assault by pointing a gun, and communicating threats in relation to the incidents at UNC Chapel Hill.
