PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- Former Arizona Cardinals lineman Desmond Harrison has turned himself into police custody after he was charged with assaulting a woman in North Carolina.

Police in Greesnboro say that on Tuesday, warrants were issued for Harrison for "assault by strangulation and assault on a female."

They say he turned himself in at 6:23 a.m. on Friday.

Harrison is being held at the Guilford County Jail while awaiting his first court appearance.

The Cardinals released him on Wednesday morning.

A statement on the Cardinals' website reads:

"The team also cut tackle Desmond Harrison Wednesday, soon after the news came out that he was being charged with assault against a female in North Carolina."

The Cardinals claimed Harrison off waivers in June after he was cut loose by Cleveland, according to CBS Sports. He started eight games at left tackle for the Browns last season.

With Harrison's release, the Cardinals now have one open roster spot.
