POLICE say they received three separate reports of assaults during a car meet to celebrate the life of a man killed in a crash. 

Hundreds lined the streets on Saturday for the event which was organised in memorial of Harrison Cross. 

The 26-year-old died in a crash with a lorry at Station Road, Eastleigh on June 7. 

After the meet, which started at Britannia Parking, Southampton and ended at the family's home in Fair Oak, police said they were reviewing CCTV to "identify offences". 


But now the force says it received three separate reports of assaults during the event.

Two people reported they had been assaulted but no injuries were sustained. 

A police spokesperson told the Echo: "A 33-year-old man from Farnham in Surrey was arrested on suspicion of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent following an alleged altercation with an individual.

"He has since been released on conditional bail until Friday 15 July.

"There were further reports of anti-social behaviour, which are being investigated, but enquires remain ongoing into all of these incidents at this time."
