Nashville Metro police say no charges will be filed against Titans receiver Kenny Britt after he was involved in a fight at the Nashville club Karma early Friday morning.
WSMV-4 in Nashville says a 26-year-old man, Harold Pointer, and a 29-year old, Bradford Miser began to fight around 1:45 AM in the club. At that point, according to the police report, Britt joined the 29-year-old and started throwing punches at the 26-year-old man, who reportedly did not throw the first punch.
“According to the witness, Britt began striking Pointer,” spokesman Don Aaron said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
“Security at the club as well as a witness then pulled Britt and Miser
off of Pointer.”
After being advised of his rights, Pointer did not press charges. The club closed for the night after the incident.
Despite the lack of charges, this will not make Titans coach Jeff Fisher happy. Britt has been involved in a string of off-field incidents. The team publicly questioned his maturity after he was out of shape.
After a rough offseason, Britt has rallied for a productive start to the season. He’s scored a touchdown in the last four games. We’re awaiting comments from Fisher.
UPDATE: Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports the police are calling the situation an “open misdemeanor assault investigation.” Britt was not present when police arrived and has not been interviewed.
UPDATE II: “At this juncture it is an open misdemeanor assault investigation with
the victim saying he may elect to move forward at a later date,” Aaron said. “At this
junction, Mr. Pointer will decide where it goes from here.”
