New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested early Friday morning in South Florida, marking his second arrest within the past eight months.
According to a police report obtained by TMZ, the 24-year-old athlete was taken into custody after he sped away from police at 105 mph in a 45-mph zone. Officers claim Anderson was driving “all over the roadway” and was uncooperative after he finally pulled over. He allegedly resisted cops’ efforts to put him in the backseat of a police cruiser and went on to make sexual threats against a cop’s wife.
The police report reads:
While in the back of my patrol vehicle, Robert stated that when he got out he was going to find my wife, fuck her and nut in her eye. He continued to make other verbal threats towards my family. Based on his statements it was clear that he intended to sexually assault my wife. He also began to brag about how much money he has and how all I was doing was trying to do is “Ruin his fun.”
Anderson’s arrest occurred at 2:15 a.m. Shortly before the incident, Anderson posted a series of bizarre tweets between 1:27 a.m. and 1:41 a.m.
Anderson is now facing nine charges, including two felonies: resisting an officer without violence; harm to a public servant/family; eluding while lights/siren active; reckless driving; failure to drive in a single lane; two counts of disobeying a red light; speeding; and turning without a signal.
The Jets released a statement on the matter, saying: “We are aware of the situation. This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment.”
In May of 2017, Anderson was arrested at Rolling Loud in Miami Beach and charged with a felony count of resisting arrest with violence. He’s still awaiting trial for that case.
