Former Rutgers Wide Receiver Kenny Britt Arrested At Hoboken Car Wash

HOBOKEN, N.J. (WFAN/AP) — Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt has been arrested again in New Jersey, a day after appearing in court on separate traffic charges.

The former Rutgers star was arrested at a Hoboken car wash Wednesday and charged with resisting arrest after two plainclothes officers suspected he was carrying a marijuana cigar, police said.

Hoboken Detective Sgt. Sam Williams says the officers were in line to pay when they detected the smell of marijuana and tried to apprehend Britt. He allegedly resisted and tried to dispose of the cigar, which was not found.

Britt was released on his own recognizance.

Separately, Britt pleaded guilty Tuesday to motor vehicle violations related to an April arrest on speeding charges in his hometown of Bayonne.

The guy is an NFL player and you to are just two flat foot’s doing anything you can to keep your little jobs. Real crime fighter’s you two turkey’s are. you probably even lied in your report I am certain of that. Punk’s both of you.

    how is this newsworthy? what gives the plainclothes police officers the right to accost someone because they smell marijuana? did the officers identify themselves as such? did you even ask these questions? shoddy journalism and poor editorial judgement.

    Move to Ct. You can get away with carrying a joint now. Our Mayor is something else. You should meet his son and then you will know why you can carry your daily joint. Enjoy and come down to CT.

      Last time I checked a map Connecticut was a state with a governor. What mayor/city are you talking about?

      Are you sure you didn’t take a few tokes before writing your post, Cecelia?
