Earlier today, 104.5 The Zone reported that Kenny Britt had been arrested for DUI at Ft Campbell in Kentucky. Apparently, he was with teammate Tommie Campbell and a female soldier, whom they were bringing back to the base. He was stopped at the security gate, and later arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence.
While Britt has been in trouble before, the news still comes as quite a shock, as all accounts had Kenny making all of the necessary changes to his lifestyle that he needed to to become a dominant force in the NFL. This latest arrest really has to make you think about Britt’s future with the team. His status was already in jeopardy on account of multiple injuries throughout his career, and on top of that, Britt has already had a franchise leading (currently) nine incidents with police since 2009, which puts him dangerous close to Pacman Jones territory.
The most upsetting thing about all of this is what a positive influence Kenny has the potential to be. He has never been described as anything less than a great teammate who works hard, supports the team, and has an infectious charisma. Kenny Britt isn’t a bad guy by any means, but he is a man and needs to start acting like it. Add to that the fact that he was recently married and is on his way to starting a family, and it’s clear KB has a lot of reflecting to do on his decisions. Let’s hope he can turn it around before it’s too late.
