Police: Kenny Britt 'not cooperating' in investigation

A spokesman for Kenny Britt said the Tennessee Titans wide receiver "has made himself available to cooperate" with police in the investigation of a stabbing incident involving an acquaintance.

A spokesman for the Jersey City police disagrees.

"At this point he is still not cooperating with police," Capt. Edgar Martinez said Monday, via The Tennessean. "So whatever statement he puts out is false. We are asking anyone who has info of his whereabouts to contact us and that includes the owner of the Titans."

(We're sure Bud Adams is thrilled to be name-checked as part of Britt's latest rigmarole.)

The story as we know it: Early Sunday, Britt drove a man with non-life-threatening stab wounds to his back to the Jersey City Medical Center. Police at first believed the injured man was Britt's brother, though they later confirmed the man as a close personal friend of Britt. Police said Britt was initially uncooperative.

Police had been called to a Bayonne, N.J., apartment earlier that night following a report that a stabbing had taken place during a fight at a birthday party. Police found no signs of trouble upon arrival, but returned later after a gun was fired near the scene.

In a statement released to The Jersey Journal, Britt's spokesman said Britt was leaving a dinner cooked by his friends' parents when he found his friend injured outside. The spokesman said Britt transported his friend to the hospital, where he stayed for several hours.

This is Britt's ninth known incident involving the police since he entered the NFL in 2009. He has made two separate visits to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his off-the-field behavior. He was suspended for the season opener for violating the league's personal conduct policy following an arrest on suspicion of DUI in July.

An NFL spokesman told The Tennessean on Monday they will look into Britt's latest incident, which is getting more complicated by the hour.
