Bet on the NFL Tenneseee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt will not be charged for his alleged involvement in an October bar brawl.
A Davidson County grand jury has indicted 29-year-old Bradford Miser on assault charges in the case, which centered on a fight at Nashville's Karma Lounge on Oct. 22. The police department's investigation began after Harold Pointer, 29, who was at the bar drinking, alleged that Bradford Miser, 26, approached and punched him in the face at 1:45 a.m. The two went to the ground and Britt was then alleged to have struck Pointer, police said.
The news release said more than a dozen people were interviewed about the incident. No one was seriously hurt.
Coach Jeff Fisher benched Britt for a quarter after the incident. Following his alleged involvement in the brawl, Britt went on to have the best game of his career three days later, scoring three touchdowns in the Titans 37-19 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He suffered an injury to his hamstring a week later in San Diego and has been inactive ever since.
The case was investigated after a customer at the bar said Britt was among those who assaulted him. Britt has denied hitting anyone. According to a news release Tuesday from the district attorney's office, the grand jury determined there was not enough proof to charge anyone but Miser.
Kenny Britt was drafted in the 1st round (30th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft. He was Rutgers' first ever first-round pick. This was a surprising pick because many thought that he would be selected by the New York Giants with the pick immediately before the Titans picked. Instead, the Giants picked Hakeem Nicks of the University of North Carolina.
Kenny's first game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was solid as he caught 4 passes for 85 yards, including a 57 yarder in a 13-10 loss. Kenny Britt scored his first touchdown, on the receiving end of a Vince Young pass, on November 23, 2009, against the Houston Texans.
In a game against the Arizona Cardinals on November 29, 2009, Britt caught a game-winning touchdown pass from quarterback Vince Young as time expired in the game. It was a leaping 4th-down catch in the back of the endzone.
On October 24, 2010, Kenny caught 7 passes, three touchdowns and gained 225 yards in a 37 to 19 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. These were the highest numbers put up by a Titans receiver since Drew Bennett caught 233 yards and three touchdowns against Kansas City on Dec. 13, 2004, and the most yards ever against the Philadelphia Eagles.
