Kansas City Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris Sentenced To Jail for Weed Arrest
Something must be in the water as yet another current NFL player has been sentenced to jail.
Demetrius Harris was caught with more than an ounce of weed after he was pulled over in Missouri back in 2017. During the stop, cops found more than 35 grams of marijuana in the car.
As a result, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end was charged with felony possession, but struck a deal with prosecutors and pled guilty to a lesser possession charge. In exchange, he got two days in jail.
“A spokesperson for Bates County Circuit Court tells TMZ Sports Harris will not get credit for time served — he must complete the 2-day sentence at a later date. No word on when he plans to turn himself in.
Harris was also sentenced to 80 hours of community service and 2 years probation and must complete an NFL drug program.”
That’s quite the punishment handed down to Harris for a harmless plant, but I digress.
