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.

Why wouldn't you open your hand.....

Hmm... I'm trying to figure out why Britt wouldn't open his hand.... And why did the narcotics officers ask him to open his hand? What fits in your hand and would be of interest to narcotics officers? Hmmmm..... I can't figure this one out.

Off Subjet : I love how the police have all these little heard of laws to use when they have nothing substantial to arrest someone for. Watch AE or TruTV and when someone starts interfering or something, "He's being charged with unlawfully use of an eyelid and potential lethal weapon a screw driver under the seat" "Book em Dan'o"

Ray, if we could get you felons back to work, we would.  Hell, add a small tax onto concessions or something so we can get you criminals back to work and off of our motorways and out of our malls.

kingbishop calling others immature lol. Here is a small sample of his "maturity".  These aren't hand-picked, just his most recent posts in order...

"@Irony101, That was the dumbest thing I have ever saw anyone ever post on here. How long did it take you to think of that? You think Dez has a small brain... Back to the drawing board Ruh-Tard!!! Ha Ha...Dez the Pez.....Get a life...."

"Anybody that is on here comparing how many points they score on these comments has no life!!! I'm with Homer on this one..dk13beso is still living in mom's basement trying to score points by cutting on people behind their back!!! Ooooh I hope I score a lot of points with this post so I could rub one out thinking about it..... "

"You should probably take a minute to read the article, the answer lies within.. His freshman year was at Tenn. then he transfered because of a coaching change and then finally was going to get another shot at a big time program"

You stay classy queenbishop.

resisting arrest with no other charges tacked on is just shady on the cops part. you have to be charged with something to resist arrest. also, last i checked, britt wasn't a 4th waiver. only traffic violations taint his record. he had no priors involving drugs or alcohol, was NEVER charged for the alleged barfight in nashville last october, and the disputed premium he guaranteed to bail out a friend is a civil matter at the very most. so who's really hassling who? britt, or the the 2 NARCOTIC cops who wrongly profiled the guy, only to find nothing on him? last i checked, the main premise to the 4th ammendment was "reasonable" search and seizure.  so if one were to infer that britt's priors only involved traffic violations, and dude wasn't in a car, then there really isn't a precident for probable cause anywhere. 
   sadly mistakened, if you're so sure that the cops did the law abiding thing by charging britt with resisting arrest. because in the end, the charges will be dropped. if you can find that wager, place it. high profile athelete or not, britt has his rights just like the writer of this story has his ad hominems. and plenty of them.

as to ray lewis' preaching about an increased crime rate if the lockout doesn't get resolved... he's dead wrong; crime on a whole will decrease. dui's will decrease. domestic violence will decrease. assaults will decrease. vandalism will decrease. drunk in public arrests will decrease and assault on emergency personnel will be non exsistent as there will be no games to staff them.
these types of crimes carry a higher frequency of arrests on sundays than do armed robbery, murder, rape, etc. that will allegedly replace them. as for drug possession....well, that may increase. if people can't get their football fix, they'll go elsewhere.
  See, you are using facts, logic, and evidence.  The self-appointed KingBishop won't like that at all as it blows his rants right out of the water.  Now, since you pointed out such things as "evidence" and "facts" you will be accused of race-baiting, will be called immature, and he will get perssonal on you.  Nothing queen bishop hates more than people making sense.  His post essentially said it is okay to drive 128 mph in North Carolina, but being upset about being arrested for nothing in New Jersey is a cardinal sin.

Well said, let is see what the cooks have to say.
