Things are getting a little bit better when it comes to the police record of Titans WR Kenny Britt. Today the charges of resisting arrest, tampering with evidence and obstruction against the 22-year-old were downgraded to disorderly persons offenses.
Britt was on hand to hear the charges stemming from an incident back on June 8th at a Hoboken, New Jersey car wash. Britt was with another person in the pay station area, along with two plainclothes police officers, who said they smelled raw marijuana, reports said.
They arrested Britt after a struggle after the cops saw what appeared to be a cigar filled with marijuana. Police said Britt crushed the blunt in his hand when police tried to take it from him. They also believe someone picked up and destroyed the evidence while they struggled with Britt, reports said.
Britt was dressed in a dark pinstripe suit and stood with his attorney. He was was admonished by Judge Margaret Marley, who told him to take his hands out of his pockets. Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Howard Bell then told the judge that the charged were being downgraded. Britt is to appear in Hoboken municipal court on June 23rd.
The wide out is also wanted in Tennessee on warrants that he made false statement while applying for a driver’s license there.
