Then he forced them into prostitution to repay the debt, officials said."

Below are highlights of the article from the TV station (WSBTV.com):

* Law enforcement authorities on Tuesday raided the Bartow County home of Hardbody Harrison, who had a run-in with the law last year over allegations that he forced women into prostitution. Officers from federal and local law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant around 8 a.m. Tuesday on two homes located on Amber Ridge Drive in Cartersville and owned by Harrison, 39.

* According to the search warrant, the reasons for the search were listed as involuntary servitude and human trafficking. Norris, who wrestled for WCW as Hardbody Harrison from 1994 to 1999, recently purchased a home next to his current residence, raising alarms among some neighbors. "He said that he had eight ladies living with him and that they were all sharing one house," resident Terry Heath said. "We thought maybe something along the lines of prostitution" was happening.

* At the time, Smyrna police accused him of befriending young women by bailing them out of jail and giving them a place to stay. He then forced them into prostitution to repay the debt, officials said. Cobb police made the arrest after three said Harrison had been holding them against their will for 11 days to three months.
