Titans WR Kenny Britt will be in court in Jersey City, N.J. on Thursday facing charges of theft-by-deception. According to PFW correspondent and Tennessean reporter Jim Wyatt, Britt is accused of not coming through on a promise to pay bail money for a friend who had been arrested in January 2010.
Britt had promised to pay the $12,500 bond for his friend, Albert "Albee Al" Robinson, but according to a pair of bail bond companies, the second-year pro failed to do so. The two companies, Boss Bail Bonds in Jersey City and Bails Bails Bails, say that Britt told them he didn't have the money with him but convinced them that he was good for it when they posted the $12,500 bail in January 2010. But later, the bail bond companies said Britt told them he never said he would pay for Robinson's bail.
This is not the first legal issue Britt has had since joining the Titans. Last October, he was involved in a Nashville nightclub fight that led to a brief suspension, and earlier he had been charged with driving with a revoked license for outstanding traffic warrants.
