There are bad weeks, and there are really bad weeks. Former Jets DB Cliff Harris experienced the latter.

Four days after being arrested in Morristown, N.J., for possession of marijuana, resulting in his immediate release from the team, Harris was arrested again last Friday on a domestic harrassment charge in Oregon, according to KGW-TV in Portland.

Harris, who played for Oregon until he was booted off the team, was seen and heard arguing with his girlfriend in a Buffalo Wild Wings. The argument moved out to the parking lot, where he was seen pushing her, eyewitnesses told police, per the KGW-TV report. That led to the arrest, although his girlfriend didn't press charges and he was released without bail.

Harris was involved in several transgressions at Oregon. He was suspended twice and finally thrown off the team in December, 2011. The most infamous incident occurred in June, 2011, when he was stopped for driving 118 mph with a suspended license. A police officer smelled marijuana and asked if there was any in the car, to which a passenger replied, "We smoked it all."

The Eagles cut Harris last year after he signed as an undrafted free agent. The Jets signed him to a reserve-future contract in January.
