Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt Arrested. For Sure.

New, comments

Jersey Journal is now reporting that Britt was resisting arrest because, police allege, he was breaking up a blunt in his hands so that he couldn't be charged with possession. It's worth noting that among the list of charges, possession of a controlled substance or narcotic isn't one of them:

The complaint says when when confronted by two officers, Britt destroyed/discarded physical evidence "to wit, a hand rolled cigar leaf containing suspected marijuana," doing so by "breaking it with your hand and therefore making it unavailable to the investigating officers." 

The complaint says 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." 

Finally the complaint said the former Bayonne High School football star resisted arrest by "using your body to push away from the officers and pulling your arm away while not allowing the officers to handcuff you." 

The fact that Britt wasn't being pinned with any drug possession charges helps his case a lot, but there's no doubt he's still in line for a suspension when the regular NFL structure returns. You also have to start really wondering if Munchak makes an example out of Britt. It's a common thread among new coaches, especially hard-nosed guys like Thorchak, but perhaps the fact that Munch has been with the franchise forever that he might not feel like it's the right way to announce his presence.

Either way, we can all agree that, at this point, Kenny Brit is a highly talented idiot.
