Kenny Britt stayed away from collective workouts with his Tennessee Titans teammates this week. However, he could not stay out of trouble.
For the second time in less than two months, the 2009 first-round draft pick was arrested.
The Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Thursday that Britt was arrested Wednesday night in Hoboken, N.J., by narcotics officers and charged with two counts of resisting arrest. He was ordered to appear in court on June 16.
According to the report, the complaint said 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."
The incident occurred just a day after Britt pleaded guilty to careless driving and was fined $478 in connection to an arrest in April. Bayonne (N.J.) police originally charged him with one felony and two misdemeanors in that matter, but he agreed to the guilty plea on lesser charges.
The latest incident just adds to a growing litany of legal troubles for the 22-year-old, who led the Titans in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns last season.
Britt was arrested for three outstanding traffic warrants in January of 2010. He was then involved in a bar fight in Nashville in October. He wasn’t charged, but former Titans coach Jeff Fisher benched him for the first quarter of a game.
Earlier this offseason, Britt was charged with theft-by-deception, a misdemeanor, after he was accused by two bail companies of not following through on paying the bail money for a friend who had been arrested.
Britt is not subject to any league discipline while the current NFL lockout is in place.
