Wesley Harris is in trouble again.

The West Virginia forward was charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery and destruction of property over what appears to be a road rage incident.

According to court documents, Harris was driving in Morgantown in mid-July when a driver on the wrong side of the road approached his vehicle. Both Harris and the other driver exited their cars, and after a verbal confrontation, Harris threw the other driver into his vehicle, denting it, before throwing him to the ground, punching him in the face and breaking his nose.

Harris was identified by a bystander who, according to 247 Sports, works for WVU’s athletic department.

“We are aware of the situation, and the matter is being handled internally,” a spokesperson for West Virginia said.

Harris, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 5.3 points and 3.6 boards for the Mountaineers as a sophomore, his first season with West Virginia. He was reprimanded during the 2017-18 season after he punched a Texas Tech fan that had stormed the court after a loss in Lubbock. WVU was ranked No. 2 in the country at the time:
