Harriman Mayor Chris Mason doesn’t mind working side by side with his city employees.
Mason, who earlier this month saw Harriman police struggle with a distraught man near Lon Mee bridge, helped police get the man under control.
Harriman Assistant Police Chief Kenneth Humphrey’s reported he and Detective Jason Joseph were attempting to subdue the man, “and Harriman Mayor Chris Mason was driving by and saw the commotion and stopped and assisted us.”
Humphrey’s report said they had talked to Assistant District Attorney General Frank Harvey, and there will  be no criminal prosecution in the case.
