Another day, another high-profile DUI. Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt was arrested on Friday morning for driving under the influence.
Details about the arrest are hazy at the moment. According 104.5 The Zone, Britt was arrested for driving under the influence while he was returning to Fort Campbell, which is on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee, with teammate Tommie Campbell and an unnamed female soldier.
The Titans released a statement saying:
“We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts.”
If the reports are true, it will be Kenny Britt’s 8th incident involving police since joining the NFL in 2009. Yahoo reports that Britt’s various run-ins with police have included speeding charges, suspicion of drug use, resisting arrest, a bar fight, traffic warrants, and driving without a license.
In May, Britt said:
“I’ll be the first to admit I got caught in some difficult circumstances, and made some bad decisions in my past… But all that changed me as a person, and I learned from it and got stronger from it.”
NFL.com reports that Britt didn’t receive a punishment from the NFL in 2011 because the incidents occurred during the lockout. It is likely, however, that Roger Goodell hands down a serious punishment for Kenny Britt’s DUI since he is a repeat offender.
