Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt has been arrested ... again ... this time for driving under the influence in Kentucky ... TMZ has learned.

The NFL star was taken into custody by the Fort Campbell Police Department at 3:30 AM Tuesday while attempting to drive on to Fort Campbell -- a U.S. Army base located on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee.

We're told Britt was with a soldier at the time of the arrest.

Britt's cherry red 2008 Dodge Challenger was taken to a nearby impound lot (pictured below).

It DEFINITELY ain't Kenny's first brush with the law ... the 23-year-old was busted back in April 2011 for careless driving ... and in June 2011, he was popped in New Jersey for resisting arrest.

A rep for Fort Campbell tells TMZ the incident is "under investigation."

11:45AM PT -- MPs tell us Britt refused a breathalyzer test, and has been charged with DUI. He was released, and escorted off the base.

I'm going to start a petition demanding that pro basketball players and football players have to stay home except to play. It would appear they can't handle their money and the public isn't safe because of it. I know not all athletes that get in trouble are basketball and football players but they sure do make up the bulk.

This is way more serious than getting a DUI on a city street or highway...the Military Police are NOT foollin' around! You certainly don't ever want to get a DUI, but you definitely don't want to get one on a base or on a Indian Reservation.
This guy is in a lot of trouble.

Please, TMZ, enough of these stories about NFL players getting into trouble with the law. So many of these losers are causing problems that it´s not news anymore.

Fire him. Fire all pro-athletes who break the law. Maybe that would send a message and we would stop having 3 pro-athletes arrested every week.

This is a tough call, not sure, but I think that neither Kentucky or Tennessee are affiliates of the Californian Celebrity Court Consortium or they may have a black exclusion considering their regional backwardness, because so far this dude is being treated like John Q. Public... and that would have NEVER happened with an affiliate after learning of his sports/celebrity status.

We were stationed at Fort Campbell for years. Luck was not on our side lol (we hated it there, NY people in TN/KY not good. As far as this goes, his army friend, well he is not a good friend or he was really drunk. That base and every base is crawling with military police and guards.
