On 7/5/2022 while working an off duty job, Officer Matt Hollingsworth was asked to assist in escorting John Robert Harvell to an awaiting transport unit. Harvell was under arrest for a probation violation at the time. As the officers and Harvell approached a closed door, Harvell made an attempted to take Officer Hollingsworth’s duty weapon. Officer Hollingsworth was able to secure his weapon and get Harvell under control. Harvell was subsequently charged with Escape 3rd degree.
The Cullman Police Department would like to commend Officer Hollingsworth for his quick reaction and ability to get the subject under control.
