TMZ NY Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson — a rising star who had a solid 2017 season — was arrested at a music festival in Florida this weekend after allegedly fighting a police officer, TMZ Sports has learned. The 23-year-old was at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami on Sunday –where stars like Migos, Gucci Mane, 21 Savage and Future performed — when he got into it with security. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Anderson was fighting with security after being told to leave. He refused and that’s when a Miami PD lieutenant got involved and told him to sit on the ground. That’s when things went from bad to worse … “[Anderson] tensed his body and pushed [the officer]. [Anderson] was redirected to the ground and continued to fight with police and security.” Anderson was arrested for felony resisting arrest with violence and misdemeanor obstruction of a police officer. In the police report, Anderson is listed at 6’3″, 180 pounds. The Jets were hoping for big things from Anderson in 2017 — he had 42 catches for almost 600 yards as an undrafted rookie in 2016.
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was extremely impressive on the field in 2016, after signing with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Temple University, the Fair Lawn, New Jersey native caught 42 passes for 587 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. The Jets thought they found a diamond in the rough in Anderson, and they have big plans for him in the future, but his arrest this weekend is certainly concerning. Anderson was attending the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami, Anderson got into an argument with a police officer, and was told to leave. Anderson refused, and when the officer told Anderson to sit on the ground, Anderson shoved the officer. Anderson was taken down by police officers, where he continued to fight back, until he was finally arrested for felony resisting arrest with violence and misdemeanor obstruction of a police officer. If you are a professional athlete or public figure or anyone else, do not resist arrest and obey police officers orders, fighting back is NEVER going to end well for you. Robby Anderson is lucky he did not get hit with the taser, or worse, and the Jets can not be happy about the decision making of one of their promising young players.
