Just two months after being arrested on a felony charge for eluding an officer and lying to an officer, Titans receiver Kenny Britt pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to a much reduced charge of careless driving, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
Our resident PFT legal expert informs me that Britt really caught a break considering the original charges. Britt was caught trying to speed away from cops after they tried to pull him over.
Wyatt reports that Britt was fined $478 and will have four “points” added to his driver’s license, but that’s it.
Considering Britt’s previous legal problems, it’s possible the NFL could still look into punishment after the lockout, although the NFLPA* would have to agree that the personal conduct policy applies during the lockout. The small punishment seemingly makes it unlikely Britt would get suspended by the league, but he will be looked at closely as a repeat violator of the policy.
The Titans have started their first full team player-only workouts Wednesday, but it’s uncertain if Britt will be able to attend because of his legal responsibilities this morning.
