One of the Rams players who participated in the controversial anti-Ferguson cop gesture has had many brushes with the law, including DUI, drug, and resisting arrest charges.
“Rams wideout Kenny Britt has nine incidents involving police since joining the league five years ago and was only suspended for one game in 2012,” according to the Boston Herald. He even refused to answer questions related to the stabbing of his friend.
He was a real hell raiser in Tennessee when he played for the Titans.
Britt has had a tumultuous two years. Aside from being sidelined with an injury this year, he has faced criminal charges at least five times in the last two years.
On June 8, Hoboken, N.J., police said they smelled marijuana coming from his car. They said they arrested him in a struggle and he tried to crush a marijuana cigarette to destroy it. He was charged with resisting arrest, tampering with evidence and obstruction. The charges were later reduced to a disorderly charge. A hearing in that case was also scheduled Tuesday in New Jersey, but has been postponed until Dec. 27.
The day before his June 8 arrest, he pleaded guilty to careless driving after an April 12 incident where police in New Jersey say he fled after they tried to stop him for speeding. He was initially arrested on charges of eluding a police officer, lying to an officer hindering apprehension and obstructing government function following a stop.
In February, charges of theft-by-deception were dropped after he was accused of skipping out on bail payments for a friend who had been arrested.
Last year, he was charged in two separate incidents, for outstanding traffic warrants and driving on a revoked license. He was also questioned in a brawl at a Nashville nightclub, though he wasn’t charged. (The Tennesean, December 7, 2011)
NJ.com even had a slideshow showing all the crimes he had committed.
Here’s just part of his rap sheet.
Britt paid tribute to would be cop killer Michael Brown.
