Florida's Harris charged with failing to appear at arraignment

CBSSports.com wire reports

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida basketball player Damontre Harris, a junior who is sitting out this season under NCAA transfer rules, has been charged with failing to appear at an arraignment.

Harris, a 6-foot-10 forward who transferred from South Carolina after last season, was arrested early Wednesday after getting pulled over for a traffic violation. Gainesville Police spokesman Ben Tobias says officers stopped a car that ran a red light near campus about 2 a.m. The officers performed a routine driver's license check and found an outstanding arrest warrant for Harris.

Harris was cited last July for driving without a valid license. That's a second-degree misdemeanor, according to court records. He had been scheduled to appear in court Aug. 16, but he never showed, triggering the arrest warrant.

Harris was released later Wednesday.
