Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt seems to be digging an ever deeper hole in this confusing incident involving a stabbing and shooting last night in New Jersey. An spokesman for Britt, who asked to remain unidentified, released this statement on Britt’s behalf today:
“Kenny was leaving a dinner cooked by his friends’ parents – it was not a house party – when he found his friend, who had left earlier, injured outside. Kenny immediately brought his friend to the hospital and was there with the injured friend’s family for several hours, but was not otherwise involved in the incident. Kenny’s brother was not injured (and wasn’t even there) and Kenny has made himself available to cooperate with the authorities investigation of this matter.”
Though the statement says that Britt has made himself available to cooperate with authorities, the police claim that they still have not talked to Britt and would like to do so. Also, according to the Tennessean, the statement was not done in part by the Titans, Britt’s agent, or the head of Britt’s management team.
The biggest question on my mind is why doesn’t Britt just go to the police and answer their questions? If there is nothing to hide and it’s obvious that they want to question him, go in, answer the questions, and clear the air on this mess. Sitting in your house, or wherever you may be, and making people physically come to you only raises suspicion.
As this draws out longer, we’re all just left sitting here, pondering the repercussions of what happened last night and questioning what lies ahead for this ever embattled receiver.
