Tuesday April 7th, 2015

Former NFL offensive tackle Kwame Harris attempted to bite a police officer following two hit-and-run car crashes in San Francisco Sunday night, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

After police found Harris sleeping in a running vehicle and attempted to handcuff him, the 33-year-old Harris attempted to bite the hand of an officer. Medics at the scene determined Harris was high.

Following the incident, Harris was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, aggravated assault of an officer, hit-and-run and resisting officers, according to the Chronicle.

After being selected in the first round of the 2001 NFL draft, Harris played six seasons in the NFL, five for the San Francisco 49ers and one for the Oakland Raiders. He last played in the NFL for the Raiders in 2008 and briefly reappeared with the UFL's Florida Tuskers in 2010.

In 2013, Harris was convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence, battery and assault following a dispute with an ex-boyfriend. He was sentenced to three years' probation and five days in a county jail.
