Police: Kenny Britt 'has ignored our request' for further help

Jersey City police are growing frustrated with the Titans' Kenny Britt.

"Mr. Britt has ignored our request for a meeting to discuss additional questions the JCPD has pertaining to the investigation," Capt. Edgar Martinez told The Tennessean on Friday.

There was no immediate response from Britt's attorney, Robert Lane.

Britt's friend got stabbed outside a party Jan. 13, and Britt took him to the hospital. But the 24-year-old wide receiver initially refused to cooperate with police in New Jersey.

Eventually, Britt spoke with police and appeared to be out of trouble, with Lane saying there was "zero chance" his client would be arrested.

Early this month, another friend of Britt's was arrested in the incident and charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. Then, police contacted Lane asking to speak to Britt again.

So far, no luck.

Britt, who has had nine incidents involving police since he was drafted in 2009, could be busy. He was in Nashville late last week to attend a settlement hearing in a 2011 lawsuit filed against him.

With Britt entering the final year of his rookie deal, GM Ruston Webster said Britt is "on the spot" to produce and stay out of trouble.

The former New Jersey high school star isn't off to a great start in 2013.
