Charges dropped for Bayonne's Britt, Hoboken Court Still Awaits

Kenny Britt has one less court case to worry about, according to media reports out of Tennessee this week.

Authorities in Tennessee, where the former Bayonne High School star plays for the NFL's Tennessee Titans, have decided to drop the charges that Britt lied about not ever having a suspended driver's license elsewhere when he applied for a driver's license there.

According to court records, Britt's license had been suspended multiple times in New Jersey, the Tennessean reported. According to the Tennessean newspaper, there was no real evidence unearthed that compelled authorities to abandon the case.

Britt, a wide receiver who is out for the season with a knee injury, simply told officials there that he wasn't aware that his license was suspended in New Jersey. And they believed him. The Tennessean reported this week that prosecutors decided to drop the charges at the urging of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

Agency spokeswoman Dalya Qualls said that Britt went before a review board and said he wasn't aware that his license had been suspended. "The department’s hearing officer found this testimony to be credible," Qualls said.
