Titans Wide Receiver

CHASED Down by Cops

4/12/2011 8:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt's off-season workout includes trying to outrun the law -- at least according to officers who busted him in New Jersey after a "COPS" style chase.

Police in Bayonne, NJ tell TMZ they attempted to pull over Kenny -- a former 1st round pick and Rutgers star -- for speeding around 4:30PM on Tuesday, but he allegedly hit the gas and kicked off the chase. 

Bayonne PD says after a few miles, Kenny just stopped and he and his passenger attempted to walk away from the car. During questioning, officers say the passenger tried to bolt on foot -- FAIL. Officers arrested him for alleged possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.

Kenny was arrested and booked for 2nd degree eluding and obstruction -- cops say he lied about owning and driving the car ... a 2010 navy blue Porsche Panamera S which was impounded.

Britt was also arrested in January 2010 -- again in NJ -- for outstanding traffic warrants.

Time for a driver?

Not surprised.

I always said the Titans wide receivers were too slow. They could never make it downfield fast enough for the Titans to maximize the benefits of Vince Young's pass. That's why he was unsuccessful. He had to neglect his passing game, not run and rely on short passes and hand-offs to create wins.

Kenny Britt is proof. Dude has a 400 hp car, attempts to outrun the police and gives up. His car should be impounded and auctioned, and the Titans should cut him because, if he doesn't have the sense to move fast enough in a sports car, he sure as hell won't do it on the field. Dumbazz

Trying to out run a speeding ticket when you've already been caught isnt very bright and dosent make sense as it would have been a ticket he could take care pretty easy.

Ideas seem so much more brillant when one is stoned

As RACIST as Bayonne and their cops are, I wouldn't have stopped either. Long time resident of JC and most blacks I know won't step foot in Bayonne because to the racist attitudes.

As a resident of the city, i do have to wonder how that car chase went down at that time of day. it's so congested!
