Oregon Ducks cornerback Cliff Harris was pulled over on Monday for driving with a suspended license, failing to wear a seatbelt and failing to have insurance. Word has since emerged that the Harris family thought that Harris' 60-day suspension period had been lifted. According to Rob Moseley of The Register-Guard, Harris' suspension actually ends on Thursday, Oct. 27th.
The 60-day suspension period resulted from a driving incident from June. Harris was caught going 118 mph in a 65 mph zone and had driving privileges revoked for two months.
Unfortunately, Harris and his family seem to have miscalculated the end of the suspension. He drove his car a few days too soon and will have to pay the price: Moseley indicates that another 30-day driving suspension is on its way for Harris due to these latest infractions.
That doesn't even begin to consider Harris' football suspension. Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has banned Harris from football-related activities and will wait until more facts emerge before dealing with some definitive punishment.
This will mark Harris' second leave of absence from the team. Following the speeding incident in June, Harris missed the opening stretch of Oregon's season, including the Ducks' opening loss to LSU.
Now he will likely miss the middle portion of Oregon's season as well. Harris and his family will contest his driving charges, but Harris doesn't appear to have much of a case against his infractions.
