More trouble for Kenny Britt

AP

Earlier today, I told someone that the “days without an arrest” meter had made it back to eight, a record for the 2011 lockout.

And the record will remain at eight.

Both TMZ.com and Jay Glazer and Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com report that Titans receiver Kenny Britt has been arrested in New Jersey on multiple charges after a car chase with police.  Britt eventually stopped, got out of the car with a passenger, and they tried to walk away.  Britt later admitted that car was his (the Tennessee plates gave it away), but he tried to say he wasn’t driving.

During questioning, the passenger, Jerel Lord, tried to run away.  (As usual, it didn’t work.)

Charges against Britt including eluding an officer (a felony), lying to an officer hindering apprehension (a misdemeanor), and obstructing governmental function (another misdemeanor).  Lord was charged with possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, and obstructing governmental function.

Earlier this year, Britt was charged with theft-by-deception, a misdemeanor.

Because of the lockout, the Titans cannot call Britt or otherwise communicate with him.

A first-round pick in 2009, Britt showed flashes of brilliance on the field in 2010, including a 225-yard, three-touchdown effort in a 37-19 win over the Eagles.  A hamstring injury caused him to miss four games, and he generated more than 100 yards only once in four games after returning.

  1. I had to cut him from my keeper league fantasy team in 2009. Too much media pressure, and I only keep quality character players on the Fort Myers Foreclosures.

    Also, it didn’t hurt that I had secured both Calvin Johnson and Roddy White.

  2. Julio Jones is looking like the pick at #8…so much for Colin Kaepernick.

    Im guessing Munchak will have a clean slate, but they can only do so much.

    They really need these OTA’s for some players…no wonder they make some mandatory.

  3. Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?

    Didn’t athletes ever take time as kids to watch “Cops”? You have maybe a 2% chance or less to get away…and to say you weren’t driving your own car, these guys must be on the reefer…oh wait, they were (teehee)

  4. Kenny Britt is good, but his performance vs the Eagles was not indicative of his actual ability. Don’t get me wrong he’s very good and has a lot of upside. But he was facing a CB half a foot shorter than him in 1 on 1 coverage. Ellis Hobbs tried to be physical and jam him at the line, which obviously didn’t work against Britt, who could easily knock him down or run past him. And then they never gave him any safety help. Probably one of the main reasons McDermott’s job status was on such thin ice and he was eventually fired was that they didn’t adjust the gameplan after Kenny Britt started torching em.

    But anyway, Kenny has to get his head on straight if he wants to be a big time receiver all the time. He played a swiss cheese defense.

    This coming from an Eagles/Rutgers fan

  5. The poor guy is just stressed out because of the lockout. Surely the prosecutor will understand.

  6. NJ doesn’t have felony and misdemeanor charges, you silly mofo. There’s class 1, 2, 3, 4, disorderly person and petty disorderly person.

    Yeah….its stupid.

  7. Apparently, one must be a headcase to be drafted by the Titans. That seems to be their #1 criteria.

  8. “He generated more than 100 yards only once in four games after returning.”

    Britt had 85 yards and a score in one of those four, and 89 yards and a score in another. Implying that Britt only impacted 1 game post-injury is an odd statistical misrepresentation, and one that in this case is completely unnecessary as Britt looks like a jerk and an idiot regardless. The fact of the matter is that this jerk/idiot can play a little bit.

  9. Blame the lock out players are bored, not to say dis would not happien if football was still in play, but it would bring the chances of them gettin in trouble down a little. Plus with the way goodell gives fines for everthing makes u think twices about pullin stunts like dis.

  10. Give him a year off. Apparently he is too stupid to learn. He will be “THAT GUY” who is broke and facing a prison sentence one or two years after he leaves the league. Pac Man Jones is wondering where this guy’s head is!

  11. Couldn’t agree more with the first comment. I was happy with Britt or Nicks on Draft day 2009, but man… we made the right decision.

  12. 54 picks later in the 3rd round the steelers draft Mike Wallace…arguably the best receiver out of that draft.

  13. I’m certain this must somehow be Roger Goodell’s fault………

    Perhaps it’s the strategy of ownership to wait long enough for every player in the league to get arrested. With the entire work force in jail, they can then bring in replacement players at a fraction of the cost without looking like the bad guys 🙂

  14. And somewhere in Texas, Jerry Jones is excited to think it he overpays, he can now get kenny Britt.

  15. Shouldn’t that charge be “attempting to elude a Police Officer”? Because, since he was arrested, he didn’t, ya know, elude them.

  16. May as well be a criminal now since I don’t think the league can punish them…..and they are “protected by the non union union”

    I think that the meter is pretty much classless and it takes away from your semi-respectable site. It gives the appearance that all NFL players are criminals.
    ———————
    The arrest meter doesn’t give that appearance, some of the players do. If there were not so many of these kinds of arrests, the idea for the meter would not have happened. It is their own fault, just because somebody notices does not make them the bad guy. The bad guys are the ones actually doing the crap like this. One of the good things that Goodell has tried to do is clean up the league. The issue is that the efforts are not impactful nor standardized. These turds give the rest of the players a bad reputation and until the union decides to do something other than protect the criminals this kind of stuff will happen. 2nd, 3rd, 5th chances for guys that routinely break the law only further their attitude of “nothing’s gonna happen to me”

  18. If this lockout goes on much longer, there will be so many players either in jail or suspended that the NFL will have to have a supplementary draft that includes prison inmates LOL!

    The longer this nonsense goes on, the less need I see for football period.

  19. Whatever…Another day, another African-American athlete’s arrest makes it unto the pages of TMZ of sports, I mean PFT.

    And one wonders why Ryan Leaf could have commit so much felonies and his punishment was 10 year probation. LIKE REALLY..

    One wonders how Erik Aignes, Jets back-up QB, could be a confessed drug addicted and never been arrested despite his many run-ins with the law, while Dez Bryant gets pushed around by the off-duty cop at a Mall and was written up when it wasn’t even his pants that was hanging.

    Anything to keep the sports media’s intentional stereotyping that these black athletes can’t stay out of trouble going.

  20. Well, of course it’s because of the lockout and the great Titan staff can’t communicate with him. Why else would he pull this stunt?

    Umm how easy you forget there Warren Moon that he doesnt have the greatest track record of staying out of trouble.
