Andy Slater of SlaterScoops.com reports that Jets WR Robby Anderson was arrested early Friday morning and is facing nine charges including harm to a public servant/family, reckless driving, eluding police, and resisting arrest.
According to Slater, Anderson was caught speeding at 105 mph in a 45 mph speed zone and he allegedly ran two red lights and did not stop for the officer behind him.
Anderson told the arresting officer that he was going to find his wife, “fck her, and nt in her eye.” The police report also says that Anderson bragged about how much money he had and how the officer was just “trying to ruin his fun.”
The Jets released the following statement, per Connor Hughes, regarding the news:
“We are aware of the situation. This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment.”
Last year, Anderson was arrested at a Miami music festival and charged with resisting arrest and obstructing justice. According to Slater, this case is still ongoing.
