Jets receiver Robby Anderson faces a long list of charges arising from a January arrest. The most serious of the charges has now gone away.

According to Andy Slater of WINZ, the felony charge of threatening a public servant or a public servant’s family has been dropped.

Anderson had been accused of telling the arresting officer that Anderson would find the officer’s wife “f–k her and n-t in her eye.”

The trial had been set to commence during the team’s training camp. It’s unclear whether the dismissal of the felony charge will change that.

Anderson still faces multiple misdemeanor charges arising from the January incident.

  1. Yet, another kid with extreme talent, who can’t get his head on straight! It is truly a shame, as he could have the world by the tail 😦

  2. I’ve had guys say that to me. It can’t be proved so you don’t charge them with it.

    You are allowed 2 phone calls (collect or if you have a quarter). Not one, like TV says.

    Nowhere (in the Patrol Guide) does it say you have to take them to the bathroom at all, let alone in a timely manner. It’s a courtesy that if one said certain things to me , one ended up having a certain problem.

  3. As a Jets fan, I have high hopes for Robby Anderson. He’s the first receiver we’ve had in a long time who is incredibly talented, that didn’t come from another team. It’s kind of nice when you sign players that develop into something special. I think with his talent, he could be a top tier receiver in the NFL. However, as a person, I’m incredibly disappointed in Robby Anderson. I follow him on Social Media, and that, along with his January incident leaves little hope for his future. He really needs someone to take them under their wing and teach him how to hold himself like a professional, on and off the field.

    Not a shame at all.

  5. The problem with Robby Anderson is he’s an angry dude ever since his college career. He was seriously slept on and needs to learn how to channel that anger on just the football field and not let it spill over to off the field. Seeing some interviews about who he is I believe he’ll learn plus with Pryor being there and Enunwa back with the team I expect to see some character growth.

    Slimebag with a badge. Way to represent your professionalism.

    See you in the 2019 season Robby.

    Goodell is a Jets fan, worked for the Jets, and will lose Article 46 in this case.

    Have you been in a coma the last 10+ years?

    The Jets can cheat, lie, steal, and commit crimes, and Goodell will do absolutely nothing about it.

  8. The charges may have been dropped but it doesn’t do anything to disprove this guy is despicable.

  9. I like how he felt the need to explain it wouldn’t be “in the eye”. Pretty sure most people would understand what you meant with the first part of your threat Robby.

    I don’t know what it means to n-t in someone’s eye, but I’m guessing it’s bad.

    Are people really this oblivious? I think it’s obvious what he meant.

  11. Every so often the Jets come up with a star, and then something happens to them and they fizzle out.

    Now Robbie Anderson. Lets see if he can recover and stay focused.

    Usually when a charge like that is dropped it’s because the officer didn’t want to pursue it. But let’s keep making cops the bad guys.

    As a retired detective, thank you….But, the District Attorney draws up the charges in legalize that you spent an hour pouring through the CPL (Criminal Procdeure Law) book, deciding what to CHARGE him with. The cop does NOT have the final say. In larger jurisdictions, where crime is relative, a ‘petty’ charge such as evasion, resisting and threatening are common. The threatening can rarely if ever be proved, so I never bothered. The other 2 charges can be proved but are routinely dismissed. Thus you end up with a jaded police force. Add in how many people are let go for insufficient evidence (when it sure as hell looks sufficient) or let go by a jury and, well, you end up with cops become judgemental and end up hating those who they are sworn to protect.

    I took everything on a case by case basis and it was a supreme effort. It’s very easy to just dislike everyone and lump them into one pile. I didn’t want to be ‘that’ guy. I wanted to be fair and be treated the way I would have wanted to be treated, with no biases and fairly.
