Former Oklahoma player arrested in Wrigleyville
Harris was arrested in Wrigleyville, a neighborhood of downtown Chicago, and charged with threatening a police officer and indecent exposure, according to officials.
From the Chicago Tribune:
Harris was arrested in the 1000 block of West Eddy Street shortly before midnight, according to Police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.
He was charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure, urinating in public and simple assault. The simple assault charge was for threatening an officer, Sullivan said.
Harris was drafted from Oklahoma in 2004 as the No. 1 draft pick for the Chicago Bears. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and was released from the Bears in February 2011. A year later, Harris’ wife Ashley passed away at the age of 29. The cause of death was not reported, but a family friend said he believed it was a brain aneurysm or a stroke.
Harris did play in the 2011 season. He was picked up by the San Diego Chargers but was released after the 2011 season.
The former Oklahoma player has a scheduled court appearance for Oct. 27
