According to the report, Britt was arrested by narcotics officers and charged with two counts of resisting arrest. Britt was issued a summons to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court in Jersey City on June 16.
The complaint against Britt states that the 22-year-old “did purposely prevent or attempt to prevent a public servant from lawfully performing an official function by means of force or violence”. One of the counts is a misdemeanor, with the other a third-degree crime carrying a prison term of 3-to-5 years.
Earlier on Wednesday, Britt plead guilty to a reduced careless driving charges and was fined $478 after he was arrested on April 12 after allegedly attempting to elude police, who had clocked Britt’s blue Porsche doing 71mph in a 50mph zone.
A former first-round pick out of Rutgers, Britt has 84 receptions for 1,476 yards and 12 touchdowns, but his career has been marred by a series of off-field incidents.
Following his rookie season, Britt was arrested in New Jersey on outstanding traffic warrants and later raised eyebrows when he guaranteed bail for a childhood friend who would later be charged in the murder of a 17-year-old Jersey City man.
Britt was kept out of practices for being out of shape, and missed four games last season due to injuries. Four days after catching 7 passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles, Britt was involved in a nightclub altercation in Nashville.
