The criminal investigation is based on allegations that were reported separately to police by Varsity, a private company that dominates the cheerleading industry and handles everything from uniform sales to major competitions. In Aug. 1 letters to police in Florida and Texas, Varsity’s chief legal officer, Burton Brillhart, said the company had learned of "inappropriate sexual conduct" allegations against Harris and was reporting the information to authorities as required by law.

911 Call From Intoxicated Jerry Falwell Jr.’s House Last Month Describes ‘A Lot Of Blood’

  911 Call From Intoxicated Jerry Falwell Jr.’s House Last Month Describes ‘A Lot Of Blood’ One week after Reuters published an explosive report on an alleged sexual and financial relationship between Jerry Falwell Jr., his wife and a Miami man named Giancarlo Granda, responders were called to the Falwells’ house in Bedford County, Virginia. According to records and 911 audio obtained by HuffPost, on the night of Aug. 30, Jerry Falwell Jr. was intoxicated and apparently injured; his wife, Becki Falwell, described “a lot of blood right now.”Alcohol use lurked behind the series of scandals that led Jerry Falwell Jr. to resign as president of Liberty University last month.

Brillhart included two screenshots in his communication with law enforcement. In one — a Snapchat message — a picture of the upper part of what appears to be Harris’ face is labeled with the message, "Would you ever want to ****". The other screenshot — which is a series of text messages — indicates an exchange that begins on Friday, May 3, 2019, when an individual named “jerry harris” writes, "Hey btw I found a place for us to do stuff it’s actually pretty good haha".

Brillhart’s letters describe Harris as a former employee who was not actively working for Varsity at the time of the incidents. In May 2019, Harris posted on social media that he was working for the National Cheerleaders Association, a Varsity brand. That summer, he posted multiple photos and videos of himself coaching athletes at NCA camps.

Varsity did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Netflix docuseries that made Harris famous follows Texas’ Navarro College cheerleaders in their quest for a national title. “Cheer,” which received six Emmy nominations, was an instant success when it was released in January. Harris became its breakout star, drawing fans for his positive attitude. Throughout the documentary, the Illinois native is seen often on the sidelines shouting encouragement at teammates as they practice difficult skills.
