We haven’t heard much of anything about running back Jamie Harper since he was released by the Titans in May and it turns out that no news was better than the news that broke the dry spell.
Harper was arrested in Franklin, Tennessee last Saturday after a fight with his girlfriend. WKRN-TV reports that Harper was charged with domestic assault after an incident at a hotel.
Harper’s girlfriend called the police to report that she had been injured in a physical argument and then called them again two hours later when Harper returned to the hotel room and banged on the door “so hard the walls of the room were shaking.” Police responded after Harper left, but found him a short time later and their report says he told them he’d been in a fight with his girlfriend and “pushed” his way past her.
A fourth-round pick in 2011, Harper had 64 yards on 36 rushes for the Titans over the last two seasons. He hasn’t generated much interest from other teams and his current legal troubles could help ensure things remain that way.
