Report: Kenny Britt nailed for eluding cops in NJ

Posted by Will Brinson

Kenny Britt must not think the personal conduct policy will be in effect anytime soon because, according to multiple reports, he was arrested on Tuesday for evading police after leading officers on a high-speed chase in Bayonne, New Jersey.

According to TMZ, police officers pulled Britt over for speeding around 4:30 PM on Tuesday, and Britt allegedly declined to be pulled over and sped off from the scene.

A few miles down the road, Britt allegedly pulled over and he and his passenger attempted to "flee" the scene ... by foot. TMZ says that "officers arrested him for alleged possession of marijuana and resisting arrest."

Britt has, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, also been charged with "evading to police, lying to police."

This all appears to be in the "allegation stage" at the moment, until there's a firm set of charges and an acknowledgement from someone close to Britt. (That gets a little tricky what with no contact from the Titans.)

But, provided the charges are correct, it's not the first time that Britt's had a run-in with the law. In 2010 Britt was arrested for outstanding traffic warrants (also in New Jersey) and then had an incident at a night club that inspired far too many CSI:Nashville jokes when Jeff Fisher decided to do a little investigation himself.

But Fisher won't be snooping around here, and neither will anyone involved with the NFL, because of the lockout. But you can bet that once the labor issues get taken care of, one of the things Roger Goodell will address is Britt's status for 2011.

Police won't charge Britt in nightclub incident

Posted by Will Brinson

Kenny Britt's had a pretty up-and-down season in 2010 (he went from nightclub incident goat to monster performance to hamstring injury to lining up across from Randy Moss), and he got another "up" on Thursday, when Nashville police announced that they would not charge Britt in the nightclub incident from October.

The police turned the file over to the district attorney and stated, per Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean that "any further action is contingent upon decisions by the district attorney’s office."

Or, you know, anyone else who wanted to get involved ...
