When parents and teacher tell children not to do drugs, they usually show them a terrifying photo that may scare them straight— Cliff Harris‘ mugshot is one of those photos.
The former Oregon football star was arrested on Saturday for drug possession and theft at a party at Clovis in California on Saturday night. The 25-year-old is currently facing charges relating to theft of property, possessing a controlled substance and paraphernalia.
In the horrifying mugshot, Harris wore a messy brown wig and looked noticeably skinnier and drugged out, with his eyes rolling in the back of his head. But reports say that it isn’t just drugs that has the athlete acting erratic. He was diagnosed with a disorder that affects the brain of people who have suffered multiple concussions.
Cliff’s mom, Lizette Harris, took to Facebook following her son’s arrest to say the this was a low and difficult time for her troubled son. She wrote, “It’s not just drugs. When he is ready he will share his story… Football has always been a major part of his life.To see your child go from a happy, outgoing and very confident person into a hurting and painful person is a very hurt full thing to see.”
Cliff Harris has a long list of criminal drama, most likely due to the effects of his condition. His drug use and erratic behavior essentially eliminated his chances with the Oregon Ducks and the NFL.
