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.
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.
