Run-ins with the law have become an annual offseason event for Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt. And 2013 is no different.
The former Rutgers star dropped his brother off at the Jersey City Medical Center after he was stabbed following an altercation in Jersey City in the early hours of Sunday morning. A gunshot was also heard about an hour and half later near the location of the stabbing.
Now, the police want to talk to Britt, but he’s been uncooperative with the police. Britt’s brother – whose stab wounds are non-life threatening – has also refused to cooperate with law enforcement.
“We are looking to speak to Mr. Britt in reference to the incident,’’ Jersey City Police Capt. Edgar Martinez told the Tennessean. “We are currently in the process of trying to do that.”
Police believe Britt was at the scene at the time of the stabbing. Police said the gunshot was fired just after Britt was picking up a friend at the home where the stabbing took place.
“They were all involved in an altercation. So they all knew each other and what was going on,’’ Martinez said. “That’s why we want to talk to him. He was involved in the incident, both incidents. He was there during that time period. So we are looking to speak to him.
“This is an ongoing investigation, and when the detectives speak to him, then we’ll know more. Right now, we have a lot of unanswered questions so we are looking for him to come in and answer some questions for us.”
