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.

He's a high profile (Black) athlete if this were Wes Welker this may not have even hit the media.. MARINE your an idiot that probably has a racist background hence the "Ghetto Garbage" comment. You've probably never had a negative experince with a cop, and being that my last statment is probably a FACT. You should even post your garbage... PERIOD

Another one???  Another One????  Ghetto garbage.  Can't stay out of trouble.....Every week or two it is another one....Then when someone mentions race on this site they get attacked... Great role models for the kids....Should be a another group growing up that think making babies and leaving the women and getting in trouble is cool. Great! More people to take care of with our taxes in jail..   Disugusted.

RAY LEWIS WAS RIGHT!!


This is just another typical dummy who refuses to leave "the hood" behind. 

Why wouldnt you just cooperate if you have done nothing wrong?

Like to hear the whole story before blaming this on Britt. The charges seem to be really digging for something here.

I am all for following instructions of law enforcement, but if the guy is in street clothes, nto sure I would do what I was being told until I am sure the person is indeed a police officer

If he had been white and in North Carolina driving like that, it wouldn't have been an issue

Big Deal, he aplogizes, pays off a few folks and pays a $500 fine and goes on to the next traffic stop.  Can the NFL punish him since their is NO agreement with the players and the NFL?
