Kenny Britt’s spokesman says Britt will cooperate with police

Although police say Titans receiver Kenny Britt is refusing to cooperate in an investigation into a stabbing and shooting in New Jersey over the weekend, Britt released a statement through a spokesman saying he will talk to police.

Police in Bayonne, New Jersey initially said Britt dropped his brother off at a hospital with a stab wound late on Saturday night, and that Britt was in the area of a shooting that took place a few hours later. Britt’s spokesman said the person who was stabbed was a close friend of Britt’s, not his brother, and that Britt is willing to cooperate in the investigation.

“Kenny was leaving a dinner cooked by his friends’ parents when he found his friend, who had left earlier, injured outside,” the statement provided to the Jersey Journal said. “Kenny immediately brought his friend to the hospital and was there with the injured friend’s family for several hours, but was not otherwise involved in the incident. It was not a house party, Kenny’s brother was not injured (and wasn’t even there) and Kenny has made himself available to cooperate with the authorities investigation of this matter.”

Britt has had several previous run-ins with the law, and he was suspended for the first game of the 2012 season for violations of the league’s personal conduct policy.

    Doesn’t this break the code of omerta?

    Kenny has a history of criminal issues and character concerns, BUT before everyone jumps all over him like I’m sure they will. From everything we know (which is just this article unless you’re personally involved), this sounds like a case of wrong place wrong time. So please, refrain from sounding like a horses rear and don’t add comments about how this is somehow Kenny’s fault or that he should have avoided this. etc etc (see any post, other than the dui post, about Aldon Smith for reference to how annoyingly stupid a large number of commentors are)

    I remember when Eli & Peyton were involved in that stabbing incident back in ’08… and then there was Tom Brady who went to court because of brandishing an unregistered hand gun… and then that time that Michael Strahan got caught with 100lbs of pot in the trunk of his car…

    Oh wait, those things never happened. Even if Britt didn’t do it, you never hear about any of those guys I just mentioned being involved in shady activities like stabbings, drugs or anything like that. Just remove yourself from the situation, dummy.

    Either he cooperated with police or he didn’t. If he was being cooperative, he’d have answered the questions when they reached out to him. I’m guessing he’ll be more “cooperative” with his lawyer present.

    Cops can and will use anything you say against you. With that in mind, why would you ever “cooperate” with them without a lawyer present? Which is his right to do, via the Fifth amendment.

    Hmm trouble seems to find this guy be it directly or indirectly.

    I’m not a lawyer, but pretty sure the fifth amendment just states that you can remain silent during the trial. I think the Miranda Rights give you the right to remain silent until a laywer is present (and the gov’t will provide a lawyer if you cannot provide one yourself). (thank you Law & Order).
