The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is preparing to issue an arrest warrant for Harvey’s bodyguard, who is accused of causing keying the car of a young equestrian show participant.
“We are planning on issuing a warrant for the arrest of an associate of Steve Harvey,” PBSO Spokesman Eric Davis told Gossip Extra. He added: “I can’t give out the name now but it appears that he is the only suspect.”
The incident occurred during the Winter Equestrian Festival’s show jumping competition in West Palm Beach, Florida this past weekend. Harvey’s 15-year-old daughter Lori was one of the equestrians participating in the event.
Police say the car of an amateur equestrian was keyed so deeply into the metal it could cost upwards of $7,000 to repair. The incident is believed to have started during an argument over a parking spot, according to Gossip Extra.
Witnesses tell police they saw a man matching the bodyguard’s description near a late model Ford Fusion in the parking lot.
Deputies caught up with Harvey and his boydguard near the tent where his daughter preparing for her competition.
“Steve just sat in a golf cart and wasn’t talking much,” a source at the stadium tells Gossip Extra. “The deputy talked mostly with the bodyguard.”
Harvey is not considered a suspect.
