Britt arrested on DUI charge

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt has been arrested on a DUI charge on the Fort Campbell Army Post.

The Titans issued a statement regarding the matter, saying, "We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts."

Britt was stopped at Gate 4 on the base when the arrest was made around 3:30 a.m. Friday morning. Britt refused a breathalyzer test after being stopped by military police. He failed a field sobriety test, and by refusing the blood test, constitutes a DUI under Kentucky law.

Britt was booked and escorted off the base, but his vehicle was impounded. He will have to appear in U.S. District Court in Fort Campbell to answer the charges. There were reports of a female soldier with Britt, but Fort Campbell PIO Robert Jenkins did not confirm that in his statement on the matter.

Britt has been in trouble before with the law, with seven, that constitutes a other arrests and police incidents since joining the Titans

Britt could indeed find himself in trouble with the NFL under the league's personal conduct policy, as he was summoned to Commissioner Roger Goodell's office last year following the lockout for a string of off-field incidents last year. Britt pledged to Goodell and the Titans that there would be no more issues with him.

Britt has also had physical issues, as he had knee surgery on his right knee last October for a torn ACL and MCL. He had a second procedure in May and a clean-up on his left knee in June.
