Former Stripper Sues Packers' Harris Over 2005 Encounter in Club

A former stripper is suing Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris, claiming he sexually assaulted her in a strip club in 2005.

Harris' agent says the allegations are unfounded. Jack Bechta says the city and state investigated the matter and found nothing worth issuing charges, so this "seems like extortion."

Investigators determined that Harris and the woman had sexual contact in a private room at the Cheetah Pompano Beach in April 2005. But, citing inconsistent evidence and conflicting witness statements, prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against Harris.

The lawsuit was filed this week in Broward County Circuit Court, also names the club as a defendant.

The woman is not named in the lawsuit. Her attorney Joseph Nusbaum says she's seeking unspecified damages.
