Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt said Thursday he did not throw a punch a week go in the Karma Lounge, as a patron in the bar alleges.
Kenny Britt doesn't deny being at the Karma Lounge, but he insists that he never hit anyone.
Britt, according to a Metro Police investigation, was said to have hit Harold Pointer, 26, after Pointer and Bradford Miser, 29, were originally involved in an altercation.
“I don't even know him. I don't even know what the boy looks like,” Britt said. “Was I involved in it? Not at all.”
Britt does not deny being at the club, but insisted he was not involved in the altercation.
“I was definitely at the club. I was definitely having a good time. I'm 22 years old. I'm going to go out and try and have some fun and try to live like I'm 22 years old and not be an old man,” Britt said.
Asked why he believed that Pointer was accuse him of being involved, Britt offered an explanation.
“We probably had some words throughout the time we were there, and probably the person that did touch him was probably with me, and he probably thought so, and now he's falsely accusing me. That's what happens in my life,” Britt said.
As for who he has told his side of the story to, Britt said, “I told the police. I'm telling the police, I'm telling you and everybody out there that's accusing me [and saying] that I touched him.”
The matter is still an open investigation, and Britt's attorney Roger May said there is no timetable for it to be resolved. May declined comment on Britt's assertion that he did not throw a punch.
"It is still an open investigation, and it wouldn't be appropriate for me to comment at this time," May said.
As for Britt facing further discipline from the team regarding the incident and result of the investigation, Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he hoped that the matter would be resolved by Friday, and that he could make a decision then.
“Hopefully, we'll be able to wrap up everything tomorrow,” Fisher said.
Britt was held out of the first 22 minutes of Sunday's 37-19 victory over Philadelphia by Fisher, but responded with the best game of his career once he was inserted into the lineup. Britt caught seven passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns.
