Titans' Britt turns self into police, faces misdemeanor charges

Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt turned himself over to Metro police Wednesday morning to face two misdemeanor charges for allegedly falsifying information on driver’s license applications.

Britt, 22, surrendered to the police department’s warrants division Wednesday, two months after the Tennessee Highway Patrol swore out two warrants against Britt for allegedly providing inaccurate information on two different driver’s license applications.

Britt was released from jail Wednesday afternoon on a $2,000 bond. He has a court date scheduled for July 18.

Britt had been away from Nashville during the National Football League lockout and wasn’t home when police originally tried to serve him with the warrants.

His away time, however, hasn’t been much help for his police record.

Britt has been arrested twice in New Jersey since April. Earlier in June he was charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of the law and tampering with evidence after plainclothes police officers in Hoboken, N.J., suspected him of possessing a marijuana cigar at a carwash. Police there later said no drugs were found at the scene.

The day before that arrest, Britt pleaded guilty to what was later downgraded to a careless driving charge resulting from an April arrest for speeding.

Earlier this year, Britt was charged with theft-by-deception for allegedly not paying a friend’s bail money as he said he would.

Last fall he was reportedly involved in a Nashville bar fight but wasn’t charged in that incident.
