Titans WR Kenny Britt was in a New Jersey courthouse on Thursday, where charges against him were reduced one week after another arrest.

Britt's charges of resisting arrest, tampering with evidence and obstruction were downgraded to disorderly persons offenses at the Central Judicial Processing court in Jersey City. The charges came as a result of an incident in Hoboken, N.J. on June 8. Britt broke a cigar leaf "containing suspected marijuana," not allowing officers to see it. He also pushed away from officers trying to handcuff him.

This is the second time Britt has had charges against him reduced. He had a felony charge of eluding police downgraded earlier this month and had to pay a $478 fine. There are still two outstanding warrants out for Britt by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Hudson County (N.J.) prosecutor Edward DeFazio told The Tennessean that he was "tired of Kenny Britt. But by the same token, you can't make things more serious than they are because it's Kenny Britt."
