Kenny Britt has had another run-in with police in New Jersey.
According to the Jersey Journal, the Tennessee Titans receiver drove his close friend to a Jersey City hospital with stab wounds around. Earlier reports said the stabbed man was Britt's brother.
When police tried to question Britt about the incident, he was uncooperative and refused to answer questions. The stabbed man had non-life-threatening injuries and also refused to cooperate with authorities.
Police were called at around 3:28 a.m. Sunday morning to a home where a birthday party had taken place. There was a report of a fight and a stabbing at the residence, but police found no sign of trouble when they arrived.
About an hour and a half after Britt drove the man to the hospital, per the Journal report, a gunshot was heard at a home near where the stabbing occurred. The shot was fired just after Britt had returned to pick up a woman who was said to be the receiver's girlfriend.
Police found a shell in front of the building and a bullet hole in a window of a ground floor apartment.
Police went to the second floor apartment and were told by a women who lived there that her two sons had been involved in a verbal argument that has escalated into a fight and spilled over into the home where the birthday party took place. The woman said her sons had left the area.
Britt has been no stranger to trouble since the Titans made him their first-round pick in 2009 out of Rutgers.
Britt just last July was arrested and charged with DUI for allegedly driving intoxicated onto the army base at Fort Campbell. Britt was suspended for one game this year by Commissioner Roger Goodell for that incident.
Prior to that, he had two 2011 arrests in New Jersey, one for allegedly crushing a cigar “blunt” containing marijuana in June of that year. He was charged with destroying and tampering with evidence in that matter.
He also led police on a car chase in April 2011, an incident that eventually led to a fine.
Britt was also accused in 2010 of assaulting a man at the Karma Lounge in Nashville.
Britt had a sub-par year for the Titans in 2012 with just 45 receptions for 589 yards and four touchdowns. It was his first season back from a knee injury suffered in the third game of the 2011 season.
Britt is also entering the final year of his contract in 2013, and needs to show the Titans both that he can return to his old form and stay out of trouble in order to have any chance of the club extending his deal.
