Reports: Ex-Bears DT Harris arrested
Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris was arrested late Monday night and charged with indecent exposure and threatening a police officer, according to multiple reports.
Harris, the Bears' first-round pick in the 2004 NFL draft and a three-time Pro Bowler, was arrested in Wrigleyville and charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure, urinating in public and simple assault, according to the Chicago Tribune. A police spokesman told the paper that the simple assault charge was for threatening a police officer.
The Bears parted ways with Harris in 2010 after seven seasons. He played 13 games with the San Diego Chargers last season. He had to deal with tragedy during his stint with the Chargers when his wife Ashley died at age 29 of a stroke or aneurysm. He is now out of football.
