At one point, former NFL receiver Titus Young and former NFL cornerback Cliff Harris appeared to be in a contest to see who could get arrested more times. Young won.

But Harris has taken the lead when it comes to getting the legal issues resolved.


According to, Harris was found guilty of harassment on Friday, in connection with an incident outside a Buffalo Wild Wings with his girlfriend. Judge Jim L. Fun sentenced Harris to 18 months bench probation, 100 hours community service, alcohol treatment, and anger-management treatment.

Harris also had been arrested for marijuana possession and for failing to appear for a court appearance in connection with the harassment charge because Harris had been pulled over for speeding on the way to court.

“I still showed up,” Harris said. “And they locked me up. The officer already explained I was going to be late. He gave them a time frame. How was I going to make it when I have no way and no means to get there?”

Harris also said he believes he’s singled out “because I play sports.” But that shouldn’t be an issue. Currently, Harris doesn’t play in the NFL -- and chances are he never again will.
