New York Jets receiver Robby Anderson was in court on Monday stemming from a January arrest. According to a report, he plead not guilty to all nine of the charges that he was facing.
“According to multiple reports, Anderson pleaded not guilty to all the charges in a Broward County courtroom,” Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk noted. “Among the charges are three felony counts for harming a public servant or their family, fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer with lights and sirens on and speeding after being pulled over by police for going 105 mph in a 45 mph zone.”
None of this should be taken as surprising.
After the arrest, Anderson’s attorney denied the allegations and said that his client was racially profiled, which you can read about here. So, it seemed unlikely that Anderson’s official plea would say anything different.
Anderson is coming off of a good season for the Jets. He caught 63 passes for 941 yards with seven touchdowns. Entering the final year of his contract, Anderson certainly hopes that these legal matters are over sooner rather than later.
