Kenny Britt arrested day after court appearance

Kenny Britt must take some perverse pleasure in legal entanglements. Because a day after he pleaded guilty to careless driving in his hometown of Bayonne, New Jersey, Britt was -- you guessed it -- arrested again. This time in Hoboken where narcotics officers charged him with two counts of resisting arrest.

Britt was issued a summons and will have to show up in Central Judicial Processing Court in Jersey City on June 16, eight days since his last court appearance.

According to WSMV.com, the complaint says Britt "did purposely prevent or attempt to prevent a public servant from lawfully performing an official function by means of force or violence, specifically by refusing to open your hand when ordered to do so then pulling your hand away."

When you've just pled guilty to another offense hours before it only makes sense that you would hassle a cop at the first opportunity, right? Look, we understand that "refusing to open your hand when ordered to do so" ranks right below jaywalking when it comes abhorrent criminal behavior. But here's a thought: if you've just had a run-in with the law, and you're a relatively high-profile athlete (or just tired of getting arrested), open your hand when the police ask you to, you know, open your hand.

Instead, Britt was charged with using his body "to push away from the officers" and pulled his arm away "while not allowing the officers to handcuff" him.

To recap: the Titans' best receiver can't get separation from law officers who probably haven't played competitive sports since high school. You know, it's not too late for the team to reconsider re-signing Randy Moss.

In related news: Ray Lewis, upon hearing the latest, nodded knowingly, and continued to preach of the impending Armageddon crime spree if the lockout isn't promptly resolved. We've been warned.

Kenny Britt arrested day after court appearance

it doesnt matter what the charge, this dude must think that laws dont apply to him. i guess he doesnt have to do what he is asked by the police officer cause he is a pro athlete. instead of cooperating and at worst, getting a ticket, the dumbass decided to play tough and be a pain in the cops ass. i guess its his life to live and he can make whatever choices he chooses, but it just makes him look like what is becoming categorized as "your typical pro athlete". life is hard enough living it with decency and respect. its even harder when you're a complete tool with no respect for authority figures. i wonder if he thinks this builds his "street rep". what a moron.

For the moment Ray Lewis may think his prediction is coming true. I did some research to see if there was a relationship. Since the lockout there have been 12 arrests. The lockout started march 13.  

I was able to find an article for number of arrests in 2006. The arrests total was 41. 19 of those arrests were during a players off season. 22 happened during the season. So arrests are slightly higher when they are playing. . The arrests for that year started jan 28. I placed the off season cut off at july 22. From august 5th on i counted those as season arrests because at this point they are having full camps and starting pre season games.

Why do people always bring race into something, if Kenny Brit does something stupid, it's not because he's black, it's because he's an idiot.

But people immediately start calling him a thug or saying something negative about the entire black race.

And then get mad when you pull their card and call them a racist.

If the shoe fits you big dummy.

This is just another typical dummy who refuses to leave "the hood" behind. 
What if he came from the "burbs"??


Why wouldnt you just cooperate if you have done nothing wrong?
Because there's no lawsuit in cooperation...

@skreffty....That's moronic for you to even go there!! First off what are you talking about? This has nothing to do with driving a car and if your talking about the reckless driving, for god's sake he plead guilty! Oh and it also had nothing to do with North Carolina so why are you dragging that great state into this, and making there police look like racists? Leave it to some immature punk who's playing the race card. People like you should be forbidden from posting on stuff like this. Oh and to remind you he was arrested by narcotic officers so clearly he was in a place that somebody of his stature and recognition should not have been. Do us all a favor and read the story three times and let it all sink in before you post a comment....

I looked up arrests in North Carolina over the last 46 years, and you are right on.  No white person has been arrested since 1965.  Come on man.
