Darron Thomas Says He Slept Through Cliff Harris' Speeding Incident.

The details of the speeding incident Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris was caught up in earlier this summer continue to trickle out, getting more hilarious by the day. Keep in mind, Harris was clocked at 118 miles per hour in a rental car paid for by an employee of the University of Oregon, who the Ducks' defensive back said was his girlfriend. If that wasn't bad enough, Harris told a cop who inquired about the smell of marijuana that he'd, "smoked all the weed."

It was Darron Thomas' turn to step to the mic and address the situation on Thursday. In hindsight, he probably should've just stayed quiet.

"I got in the car, and he [Harris] wasn’t the driver or anything like that," Thomas said. "He was in the car. I went to sleep and woke up with the police there."

When asked if he had smoked any of the pot the police officer claimed to smell during the incident, Thomas said, "not at all."

To recap: according to Thomas, he went to sleep as someone else was driving the car. When he woke up, Harris had been driving and the police had stopped the car for going 118 miles an hour. Somehow, Harris hopped into the driver seat, allegedly smoked all the weed, and decided to joyride the rental, all while Thomas dozed off without noticing a thing.

Let's also keep in mind that Thomas seems to always be riding shotgun when bad things happen in a car driven by a fellow Oregon player. There was the Eddie Pleasant incident, the Jeremiah Masoli incident that involved marijuana and now the Cliff Harris incident. It's not a good look at all.
