BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) -- Police arrested Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt in his hometown of Bayonne, N.J., after an officer reported seeing him speeding.
Bayonne Police Chief Robert Kubert says Britt faces charges of eluding the officer, hindering apprehension and obstructing governmental function.
Kubert says Britt was driving his Porsche at 71 mph in a 50-mph zone Tuesday. The chief says Britt drove away from the officer and was eventually found on side street walking away from the car. Kubert says Britt first denied being in the car, then denied driving and then finally admitted he was behind the wheel.
The agency that represents Britt says it is not ready to comment. Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren says only that the team is aware of the reports.
Britt has an April 19 court appearance.
