Kenny Britt made it a whopping two days into July without getting mentioned in some sort of public imbroglio. Which, I suppose, is kind of impressive given his unbelievably embarrassing streak of run-ins with the law -- and Facebook! -- over the summer.

The City Paper in Nashville is reporting that Britt's now being sued by Harold E. Pointer, the man who he wrassled with at Broadway's Karma Lounge in Nashville last year.

Pointer has filed a civil lawsuit against Britt, seeking $150,000 in punitive and compensatory damages.

As you may recall, this scuffle led to then Titans coach Jeff Fisher to do a little CSI: Nashville snooping around the nightclub. (Which, in turn, led to me photoshopping this picture and using it no less than 40 times last year.)

Britt will likely need some investigative help this time around, too, if he wants to avoid a settlement that'll cost him some money.

Even though it's a he-said/he-said scenario, Britt's run-ins with the law this summer don't exactly put him in a good position to claim status as a model American.

That's the most ignorant statement i've ever heard.

There's no telling how a player will react or the type of reactions they'll receive after acquiring the amounts of money they do.

Besides, nothing Vince Young did before, during, or after his time with the Titans said "thug". Since the Moment Young was drafted the Titans fans were split on him 50/50. Half didn't want or believe in him and the other half did.

Even Fisher wasn't sure if he wanted VY on his team.

Locker has more support than VY ever did and he hasn't even had an official practice yet.

I think he handled his situations and time with the Titans. He didn't have what it took to be a great QB but he was average. However, average wasn't good enough to win ove the fans who didn't believe in him so there for he's look at as a failure.

Now somehow you want to label him a thug because he punched someone at a club?

There are fights that breakout all over the world in political meetings and such and I bet not one of them had a drop of alcohol in their system.

All the thug had to do was pull up his pants. He was just being defiant. Most people know this is how they like to act. He probably got rude and obnoxious because he wanted to have his pants hang half way down his arse. lol The cross dresser thing is whacked. I wouldnt want to sit next to that. Would you?

@wiseWhite1991..to answer your question here a good example of double standard, styerotyping and basicly racism which is what happens in the media as well..


 White Watch: Black Athlete Thrown Out Of Plane And Arrested For Sagging Pants But White Man Allowed To Fly In Women's Underwear

 Well, a reader of the San Francisco Chronicle, which first reported the story of Deshon Marman,  of a scantily clad passenger who was allowed to fly six days earlier. The picture, taken June 9 before a flight from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Phoenix, shows a man wearing blue, women's underwear and thigh-high stockings. The man is wearing a spaghetti-strap top, baring his midriff. The panties are just as revealing.

 
According to police, the day Marman was arrested, he was wearing pants, "below his butt and his boxer shorts were showing."

So the new revelation brings up lots of questions about the airline's dress code and whether there is a double standard at play. It also brings up questions about race, which we , too. The man allowed to fly is white and Marman is black. The Chronicle spoke to Marman's attorney:

... Joe O'Sullivan, said that his client had been stereotyped by US Airways as a thug and that the airline was guilty of racial discrimination for asking Marman to adjust his clothes. Marman is African American.

"It just shows the hypocrisy involved," O'Sullivan said after he viewed the photo of the cross-dressing passenger. "They let a drag queen board a flight and welcomed him with open arms. Employees didn't ask him to cover up. He didn't have to talk to the pilot. They didn't try to remove him from the plane - and many people would find his attire repugnant."

O'Sullivan added, "A white man is allowed to fly in underwear without question, but my client was asked to pull up his pajama pants because they hung below his waist."

The woman who sent the picture, Jill Tarlow, told the Chronicle passengers complained about the man. The  that a US Airways spokesperson confirmed the man in the panties was allowed to fly. But the airline is sticking by its decision to kick Marman off the plane and let the cross-dressing passenger fly:

"We don't have a dress code policy," [US Airways spokeswoman Valerie] Wunder said. "Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that's not appropriate...So if they're not exposing their private parts, they're allowed to fly."

The airline has said Marman was exposing a body part on June 15 when he was repeatedly asked to pull up his pants.

His attorney, Joe O'Sullivan, said surveillance video would show his client's skin was not showing.

Is it possible to go one day without a black football player getting into trouble? It never ever ends!!  Every single day on CBS we read these stories.  The black culture has to change or it is doomed to be worse than it is already.
