Man accused of harassing, licking PetSmart employee

A Columbus man faces accusations he harassed — and licked — a PetSmart employee, Columbus police said.

Crayton Coursey, 60, was charged Sunday with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of simple battery, reports state.

According to police, Coursey went inside the 1591 Bradley Park Drive pet store on April 11 and licked a female employee on the face. He also wouldn’t leave her alone.

Police say Coursey returned to the store on Sunday, followed employees around and harassed them. Officers arrested him about 3:40 p.m. Sunday inside the business.
