The charge is a second-degree misdemeanor. Harris is reportedly set to appear in court on Jan. 15.
His attorney, Huntley Johnson, told The Gainseville Sun that Harris is attempting to obtain a license.
“I think as soon as he gets his license, the charge probably will be dismissed,” Johnson said. “That's the way it's usually handled in a case like this for a citizen, and he's a citizen.”
Harris, who replaced junior Jeff Driskel as the Gators' starting quarterback in October, has passed for 896 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions while adding 291 yards and three touchdowns on the ground this season.
Florida will face East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl on Jan. 3.
