Police believed to have talked to Britt

Metro Police are believed to have interviewed Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt in regards to last week's incident at the Karma Lounge.

The matter is still an open investigation, with no arrests made and no charges having yet been filed, but Britt is said to have punched Harold Pointer, 26 during an incident involving Pointer and another man in the club, Bradford Miser, 29, at around 1:45 a.m. Friday morning. He could potentially face a misdemeanor assault charge.

“We are still conducting the investigation and interviewing as many witnesses as possible,” Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron said.

Britt, 22, was benched by Coach Jeff Fisher for the first 22 minutes of Sunday's 37-19 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, but enjoyed a career day once he got onto the field. Britt caught seven passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns.

Fisher still left open the possibility of disciplining Britt further than just the early benching, if other facts regarding Britt's role in the skirmish come out in the investigation, including not playing him this weekend in San Diego.

“We're plugging the receivers in, and if it's some late notice thing this week, it's not going to affect us other than his production,” Fisher said.

Veteran Justin Gage has been practicing for more than a week in making his way back from a hamstring injury, and could be active this Sunday.

Asked where his own fact gathering was in the matter, Fisher replied, “I'm still trying to gather information. Nothing has changed.”

Britt attended practice on Wednesday but was unavailable to the media because of a “meeting” he was attending. No details were offered regarding that.
