Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson will not face prosecution on a felony charge from a 2017 arrest in Florida, according to NFL Network, citing his attorney as stating the resisting arrest charge has been dropped.
Anderson, 25, was charged with felony of resisting arrest with violence after he was arrested May 7 of last year. Police on the scene accused Anderson of pushing an officer after Anderson was involved in a fight with security at a concert in Miami.
He is not free from legal issues, though, as he continues to face a misdemeanor count of reckless driving stemming from a Jan. 19 arrest in Sunrise, Fla. He has a pending court date in July and could face discipline from the NFL based on the league’s Personal Conduct Policy if it is determined he is in violation.
Anderson had a breakout season in 2017 with 63 receptions for 941 yards and seven touchdowns.
