UPDATED: UPD officer arrested for stalking
CLARIFICATION: (Aug. 26, 3:17 p.m.) An article on page A5 in the Aug. 17 Eagle News issue, an article was unclear about the details about a UPD officer arrest. Officer Mike Harbury was suspended with pay pending the outcome of the FGCU investigation. Harbury’s court appearance related to his arrest by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office will not determine his future with UPD.
Early last week an officer for the University Police Department, Mike Harbury, was arrested for stalking and violating a restraining order that was filed against him by a 25-year-old female living in San Carlos Park.
The victim saw and photographed Harbury on his motorcycle outside her apartment complex, just two hours after he was served with the restraining order.
Harbury is 46 years old and has been working at FGCU since 2003. Harbury has been put on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of an FGCU investigation into the matter.
Harbury was arrested and released that day on a $5,000 bail. Harbury’s court appearance related to his arrest by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office will not determine his future with UPD.
