Per TMZ, FBI agents have executed a search warrant at his home in Illinois Monday, but Harris has not yet been charged. “Authorities were reportedly made aware of the allegations when Varsity, a private company in the cheerleading industry, alerted cops in Florida and Texas. The company learned about the claims of ‘inappropriate sexual conduct’ last month.”
They add, “According to the report, Varsity shared 2 screenshots with police, including an alleged Snapchat message of Jerry’s face with the message, ‘Would you ever want to ****.'”
