Cliff Harris Arrests: Former Jets Cornerback Arrested Twice In Five Days
Former New York Jets cornerback Cliff Harris has had quite the week.
Just days after the University of Oregon standout was busted for possession of marijuana — and subsequently cut from the Jets team — authorities say Harris was arrested on a charge of domestic harassment after witnesses reported him assaulting his girlfriend.
According to KGW8 News, the alleged incident occurred on Friday around 10:00pm outside a Buffalo Wild Wings in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Hillsboro Police Lt. Reimann said the department received reports that Harris, 22, and his girlfriend were fighting in a parking structure near the restaurant.
“We understood that there was some pushing and shoving going on between the two,” said Lt. Reimann.
Reimann said that the woman didn’t press charges.
After his arrest, Harris posted bail and was released from jail Saturday afternoon.
He’s expected to appear in court this week.
Unfortunately, Harris is no stranger to run-ins with the law.
In 2011 he was dismissed from the Ducks’ football program for violation of team rules after a series of traffic-related offenses, including driving over 100 mph on Interstate 5 with a suspended license.
In another incident, Harris was quoted as telling police he “smoked it all,” in reference to a question about marijuana after he was pulled over for speeding.
Harris originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in April 2012 but was cut four months later.
He has yet to play in a NFL game.
