Buckle up: DMV says Duck star OK to drive again Thursday, but ...

EUGENE, Ore. - University of Oregon football player Cliff Harris could have been driving legally in Oregon again this week.

That's the word from the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles. 

The DMV told KVAL News on Wednesday, Oct. 26, that the license suspension ends the next day for the All-American.

Long story short: with $75 and proof of insurance, he could be back on the road legally on Thursday.

This all comes after the star cornerback was stopped Monday afternoon by Eugene police.

Officers cited Harris on Oct. 24 for driving with a suspended license, driving uninsured and failing to wear his seat belt. He was pulled over for the last of those charges.

Harris was suspended from the football team Monday night by Oregon head coach Chip Kelly.

Harris' father, who lives in Fresno, Calif., told The (Eugene) Register Guard newspaper that they have paperwork to show that the driving suspension should be lifted. He said they would fight the citations.

That driving suspension stemmed from Harris' 118 miles per hour speeding ticket from June on Interstate 5.

The family said it also has proof of insurance for the car Harris was driving Monday.

Spokesman David House with the DMV said Harris' license is still suspended - but said Harris can apply for reinstatement of his driving privileges as of Thursday, Oct. 27.

He added that if Harris is found guilty of this week's citations of driving while suspended or driving uninsured, the conviction would trigger another 30 day suspension of his license.

As for playing for the Ducks, Harris remains suspended from the team and could miss the next game for Oregon this Saturday at home against Washington State.
