Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris was pulled over and cited for driving 118 MPH earlier this summer. It was a minor piece of news in the Beaver State, but nothing any of us would find interesting. That is, until today when the video from the police car was released online. It turns out Harris wasn’t the only Duck in the car – he was with quarterback Darron Thomas and the officer let both men go despite a strong marijuana odor coming from the car. Oh, and this idiotic statement from Thomas:
Officer: “Who’s got the marijuana?”
Thomas: “We smoked it all.”
Officer: “You’re Cliff Harris?… The football player? And you’re Darron Thomas???”
The officer then asked to see their Pac-10 rings. Harris was given a speeding ticket and both men drove off without any record of Darron Thomas being in the vehicle.
Doesn’t it seem like Oregon football players stay in trouble?
