Former Redskins player arrested for 3rd DUI

Posted by Unknown | Mar 12, 2014 | 0 Comments

Rickie Harris, a form Redskins' defensive back in the 1960s, was arrested last December for his third drunk driving charge. His trial started earlier this week. The 68 year-old man suffers from dementia, but a Fairfax County judge ruled him competent to stand trial.

Harris' lawyer claims that his client's dementia hinders his ability to participate in his defense, but the judge ruled otherwise. The former football player was first arrested in late 2006 for drunk driving and had his license suspended for one year. He was arrested again in May 2007, sentenced to 20 days in jail, and a three-year license suspension. If convicted, Harris could serve a mandatory six month minimum in jail.
