Robby Anderson has arrest warrant lifted over clerical error
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson appeared to be in more trouble with the law this week after a warrant was issued for his arrest, but it turns out the warrant was — ahem — unwarranted.
The warrant stemmed from Anderson failing to appear in court on Tuesday for a hearing in his ongoing reckless driving case. Anderson’s attorney, Ed O’Donnell, said neither he nor Anderson ever received a notice that they were supposed to appear in court. Apparently the court agrees, as the warrant has been lifted.
Spoke to Ed O'Donnell, the attorney for Jets WR Robby Anderson, who said the warrant issued for his client has been lifted. O'Donnell said it was a clerical error by the court. Anderson wasn't notified of the court date, hence his absence yesterday. Next court date July 19.

Anderson was arrested on Jan. 19 after he reportedly sped past a marked police car while driving over 105 mph. He then allegedly threatened to sexually assault an officer’s wife. The 24-year-old was also arrested last year for allegedly getting into a physical altercation with an officer at a music festival.
The Jets have stuck with Anderson despite his numerous off-field issues. He caught 63 passes for 941 yards and seven touchdowns in a breakout season last year.
