Kenny Britt, who's been the most prominent police-blotter name in the NFL this offseason, turned himself into police today and is back free on a $2,000 bond.

That's according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, who notes that Britt had outstanding warrants for his arrest issued by the Tennessee Highway Patrol "from a false application on a license."

Britt's court date has been set at July 18th.

Yes, for those tracking, this is the third legal issue this summer that Britt will be dealing with -- he's already pled guilty to reckless/careless driving, managed to get nailed for resisting arrest the day after he was in court, and now he's got the warrant business we just found out about a few weeks ago. (At least the charges got downgraded? I don't even know what to think at this point.)

And that probably means he's got some sort of suspension heading his way once a labor agreement is reached.

That's based on Roger Goodell's recent indication that the NFL will dole out punishments for folks who broke the law while locked out from work.

Welp, at least Britt should get a second chance to complain publicly have his Facebook account hacked.

Is it bad to still want him on my Fantasy team as my third WR?

Oh and Big Ben got 4 games for not even a charge, so Britt will get what? 40 games?

geeyo, it's not that high paid athletes make the dumbest decisions. Because there are plenty of low to no paid athletes that make stupid decisions as well. The fact of the matter is that some paople are just plain stupid. Bad decision making comes along with the territory. Yes, it's sad. But as Jane's Addiction once sang, "Idiots Rule"!!!

Are you shitting me? Really? What a waste of space. You would think someone would take him aside, get all his legal issues under control and be done with it until he fucks up again. Or until next Tuesday.

I think it's time for Britt to do himself a big favor by having a self impose house arrest on himself. How dumb can this guy be? Either he is one of the unluckiest NFL player right now or he is just plain stupid to think that he can get away with whatever. Somebody, his friends and/or family members needs to tell him that with the present economy and his records now, he is not going to find a job that will be paying him more that what the NFL is paying him if the NFL is done with him. Get a grip Britt.

I hope he get the help he is seeking. The commissioner will  suspend him I am sure as he has done in  the past, even if he does not get convicted by a court of law. I know occasional the commissioner will fine these guys. Perhaps he should increase the fines charged these culprits. I think all fines eventually go to a charity. If this is the case then do the player get to write this charitable event off on their federal taxes. This is not much of a fine, except they do not get the money in their hot little hands.
 
I can not understand why such a talented football player would do such things that would jeopardize their ability to earn millions and millions of dollars for the minimum work and time.

There will be younger guys currently playing in high school and saying I want to be just like that guy when I get to the NFL. He will not get the end result of punishment just the fact that this guy apparently got caught speeding, getting by with the minimum punishment, therefore, thinking he can do the same with little or no punishment.

I hope he get his act together before something really bad happen to him like shooting himself in his leg.
