The simple assault charge came from threatening an officer. The urinating in public is a separate charge, so he was charged with three misdemeanors in all.

Harris currently is out of football after ending last season with the San Diego Chargers. He was released by the Bears in February of 2011 after a long and productive run with the team that was marred by injuries.
