Former Penn State junior cornerback Willie Harriott has been cited for driving with a suspended license.
Nittany Lion’s coach Joe Paterno said early this week during his weekly call-in radio show that Harriott was booted from the team because of an incident.
Paterno said Harriott “got himself in a jam and won’t be on the team.”
Penn State police reported today that they have filed two summary traffic citations charges against Harriott.
Never miss a local story.
He was charged with driving while operating privileges are suspended or revoked, DUI related; and not having vehicle registration.
Harriott was charged Nov. 11 2007 with DUI after police say they saw him speeding and leaving his lane on North Atherton Street around 4:15 a.m.
According to Ferguson Township police, Harriott registered a blood-alcohol content of .16 — twice the legal limit.
Harriott was placed into a diversionary program for first-time offenders. That program often includes having one’s license suspended.
