Jets WR Robby Anderson arrested, allegedly shoved police officer
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested at a music festival on Sunday night, and he allegedly shoved an officer during the incident.
According to an affidavit from the Miami-Dade Police Department that was obtained by SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, Anderson began fighting with security when he was asked to leave the concert. When he was ordered to sit on the ground and told he was being placed under arrest, Anderson reportedly “tensed his body and pushed” an officer. He is said to have “continued to fight with police and security” when he was being directed to the ground, and he was eventually charged with one felony count of resisting arrest with violence and a misdemeanor count of obstructing police.
WINZ radio station in Miami reported that Anderson was believed to be on stage or backstage at the time he was arrested. The police report stated that there was no indication he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
A Jets spokesman told Vacchiano the team is aware of the situation and will not comment further on a “pending legal matter.”
Anderson showed some great flashes last season, finishing with 42 catches for 587 yards and two touchdowns. He could find himself on the roster bubble this summer after the Jets drafted wide receivers in the third and fourth rounds, and the legal trouble may not help his cause.
