Charges filed in death of Gallia officer
(WOUB) - The man a Gallia County law enforcement officer was pursuing when he drowned Tuesday is being charged in connection with his death.

Investigators say David Poling, a probation officer in Gallipolis, went into the river to try to catch 22-year-old Joseph Harris, who was running away from another officer.

An official at the prosecutor's office says Harris has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and obstructing official business.
