Titans WR Kenny Britt, no stranger to legal troubles, is sought by Metro police for two outstanding warrants sworn out by the Tennessee Highway Patrol, according to The Tennessean writer and PFW correspondent Jim Wyatt.

Britt allegedly made false statements on his driver's license applications, according to Metro police spokesman Don Aaron. The charge is a misdemeanor.

Britt's attorney, Jonathan Farmer, said Monday that Britt will cooperate fully with authorities on this matter.

Last Wednesday, Britt was arrested in Hoboken, NJ, and charged with tampering with evidence, obstructing a government function and resisting arrest.

He is scheduled to appear in a Hoboken court on Thursday.

His arrest in Hoboken came less than 24 hours after felony charges stemming from an April arrest for eluding a police officer, lying to an officer hindering apprehension and obstructing governmental function following a stop were downgraded to a misdemeanor of careless driving. Britt was fined $478.

Since being selected 30th overall by the Titans in the 2009 draft, Britt has had at least seven legal run-ins.

Britt, 22, had 42 catches for 775 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games last season. He is expected to be subject to the league's personal-conduct policy and likely will face a suspension once the lockout ends.

The way we see it

The hits keep on coming for Britt and the Titans. The club views Britt as its second-best player behind RB Chris Johnson, and it needs to find a way to get through to the troubled pass catcher before it's too late. It's a near certainty that he will be disciplined by commissioner Roger Goodell once a new labor agreement has been reached, but it also would behoove new head coach Mike Munchak to discipline Britt himself to send a message that the player's immaturity and reckless decision making will no longer be tolerated under a new regime.
