Well, no surprise here: more NFL thuggery. Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was pulled over for speeding by a policeman and allegedly made a disgusting threat to the officer. He told the officer he will find his wife and “f*** her and n*t in her eye.”
The report from the Broward County Police Department states that Anderson was pulled over around 2:15 a.m. Friday for going 105 mph in a 45 mph zone for about 3/4 of a mile. He was cautious enough to slow down to about 45 mph at a red light, but he ran the light. He then ran another red light before he began to swerve from lane to lane.
When Anderson finally decided to stop, Officer Hennessy ordered for him to get out of the car and called for backup. Another officer arrived and at this point the defiant Anderson demanded a lawyer and made it difficult to get him into the police vehicle. According to Hennessy’s report, Anderson was “brace, tense and refuse” to enter the vehicle.
Per the police report:
While in the back of my patrol vehicle, Robert stated that when he got out he was going to find my wife, f*** her and nut in her eye. He continued (to) make other verbal threats towards my family. Based on his statements. it was clear that he intended to sexually assault my wife. He also began to brag about how much money he has and how all I was doing was trying to do is “Ruin his fun”.
Per Daily Wire:
Hennessy reported no indications of drug or alcohol influence.
On Saturday, Anderson’s attorney, Ed O’Donnell, speaking to the New York Post, claimed Anderson believed he “could have wound up dead” from his confrontation with police, adding, “He’s not accusing anybody of anything … but what happens to young black men when they’re stopped for a traffic offense? Because that’s what it was. The other stuff was after the fact.” O’Donnell, who bailed Anderson out of jail, said he spoke to Anderson on Saturday. He stated, “I said, ‘I’m glad you’re OK,’ and he said, ‘I know. I could have wound up dead.’”
O’Donnell claimed, “The charges are totally out of character for Robby. He’s just a fine young man who I hold in high regard. I don’t know what he said [to police]. I know what’s been printed. I’ve been doing this for 47 years and what’s stated in a police report is often at odds with true facts. It started as a traffic offense and escalated, OK?”
This is not Anderson’s first brush with the law; in May 2017, he was charged with resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of a police officer.
For the incident on Friday, Anderson has been charged with resisting an officer/obstruction without violence; felony harm to a public servant or family; felony fleeing/eluding while lights/siren active; reckless driving; failure to drive in a single lane; two counts of disobeying/avoiding a red light; speeding; and turning without a signal.
After an incredibly stupid series of actions, Anderson’s attorney was sure to pull the race card. Sure, he was driving 60 mph over the speed limit and was a total jerk to the officer, but blame it on being black. How about this, pull over when the officer puts his lights on. Or even better, drive the speed limit.
NFL players are on a mission that is anti-cop and anti-American.
Many took to Twitter to express their disgust in Anderson.
Per the police report, Anderson allegedly told the arresting officer he was going to find his wife, "f**k her and n*t in her eye.” My lord. Report said he was doing 105 mph in a 45 mph zone
