How many National Football League players have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) since the last play of the Super Bowl? I would bet it is more than a handful. It seems like a day does not go by where an NFL players is not arrested for some violation.
Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt is the most recent DUI offender. He was arrested in mid-July on a charge of DWI at Fort Campbell, Ky. This according to ESPN.
The incident occurred around 3AM when Britt tried to enter Fort Campbell through the main gate.
Of course there is mystery and controversy. Britt and Titans cornerback Tommie Campbell were with a female soldier when he was stopped, yet Campbell has tweeted he was not with Britt, but in Pennsylvania with his kids.
It has been a tough 12 months for Britt who is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in June. He also had arthroscopic surgery in May, but on his right knee. Britt tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last September.
Britt's arrest could produce a suspension under the personal conduct policy considering Britt's past. He was warned by the NFL just last August that future actions could result in discipline.
Britt is no stranger to trouble since the Titans drafted him in the first round in 2009.
His list of problems have included, outstanding traffic warrants for false statements on his driver's license application, a ticket for driving without a license, a lawsuit over his alleged role in a Nashville bar fight, an arrest after a car chase, charges for resisting arrest after police confronted him over what they thought was marijuana possession.
Britt needs to get himself to a good alcohol class. Then take a drug class and vow to stay sober if he is going to have any career whatsoever. He is not that talented so it is surprising the Titans continue to put up with his antics.
