Jets WR Robby Anderson Arrested

Robby Anderson was arrested early Friday morning in Sunrise, Florida, according to multiple reports. Details are sparse at the moment, but the Jets wide receiver is facing the following nine charges: harm to a public servant or family, reckless driving, resisting an officer/obstruction without violence, fleeing/eluding while lights/siren active, failure to drive in a single lane, two counts of disobeying/avoiding a red light, speeding, and turning without a signal. Robby Anderson (vertical)

Unfortunately, this is not Anderson’s first run-in with the law. The 24-year-old (25 in May) was arrested last year after getting into a fight at a Miami-area music festival. He is facing charges of felony resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of police for that incident and will appear in court on March 19.

Anderson’s latest slip-up comes on the heels of a breakout season. As an NFL sophomore, Anderson led the Jets with 941 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. The former undrafted free agent figures to be a big part of the team’s plans in 2018 (along with a healthy Quincy Enunwa), but a suspension and/or jail time could force the Jets to look elsewhere for WR help.

      That’s the most ludicrous thing I’ve ever heard. 1 example of something in a much larger class proves nothing, except that he’s an idiot. It would be like saying one homeless person being an alcoholic proves most homeless people are alcoholics.

      It DOES prove you are a moron.

        While this guy is a thug and isn’t alone in the nfl, and I would honestly say that the league has disgusted me this year where I have only watched the last four minutes of the Vikings game this past weekend all season, I would even say that was a bad comment Ironman. And Vermont, get over yourself with trump. Sheesh.

        “Cracker”? That’s classy. I’m sure the moderators will rush to take that comment down. I love how you criticize a a perceived racial sleight with a blatant racist response. You sound like a real intellectual.

    What can you do? If you keep him on the team and he does something really bad, you look like a dope for keeping a bad egg. If you cut him and someone else picks him up and he does well, you end up with egg on your face.

  5. An American cop could create that list of charges from running a single red light, particularly if the target is black. If Anderson were a local judge’s, cop’s or city councillor’s son, those charges would disappear in smoke. Robby Anderson deserves his day in court before we pass judgement.
