Ex-Jet Harris arrested again

The SportsXchange

Former New York Jets cornerback Cliff Harris was arrested in Oregon for the third time in nine days, according to Fox 12 in Portland, Ore.

Harris was pulled over by Hillsboro, Ore., police on Tuesday morning for speeding and passing in a no-passing zone on his way to court. The traffic stop caused him to be 90 minutes late, leading to an arrest for failure to appear in court.

The former Oregon defensive back and kick returner was headed to the Washington County courthouse after an arrest on domestic harassment charges last Friday involving a reported shoving incident with his girlfriend in a restaurant parking lot.

The officer who made the traffic stop on Tuesday found that Harris didn't have a valid driver's license and would not allow him to get back behind the wheel. By the time Harris found a ride to court, he was late and the judge issued a bench warrant that led to his immediate arrest. He was in the Washington County Jail awaiting arraignment.

Harris was cut last week by the Jets after he was arrested in New Jersey on possession of marijuana chargers.

He also ran into trouble in college at Oregon. He was arrested for driving 118 mph in 2011 and later dismissed from the program for violating team rules.
