Titans WR Kenny Britt will get the break of a lifetime–you know, aside from making it to the NFL– as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that Britt will not be further disciplined for his multiple run-ins with the law during the NFL Lockout.
CBS Sports with the report:
…..Britt’s incidents involved outstanding traffic warrants, driving without a license, failing to pay bail promised for a friend ,and a bar fight in which no charges were brought against Britt after a grand jury investigation.
But in April, Britt was arrested in his hometown of Bayonne, N.J., and charged with eluding an officer and hindering apprehension when police accused him of driving his Porsche 71 mph in a 50-mph zone before leaving the officer. Britt later was found walking on a side street away from his car. Charges were reduced to a misdemeanor and a fine.
A day after those charges were reduced, two plainclothes officers at a Hoboken car wash smelled marijuana and accused Britt of holding a rolled cigar they thought was the source. Britt was wrestled to the floor and handcuffed, and police believed a man with Britt may have disposed of the cigar.
Britt’s charges included resisting arrest, and he faces a Sept. 20 court date after pleading not guilty.
