A missed arraignment for a reckless driving charge has resulted in a warrant being issued for the arrest of New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson.
According to a New York Post report, Anderson, 24, failed to appear for a scheduled court date Wednesday in a Broward County, Florida courtroom to face a misdemeanor count of reckless driving. The charge reportedly stems from his arrest January 19 for allegedly driving 105 mph in a 45 mph zone and running two red lights. Police say after pulling Anderson over and arresting him, he also threatened to sexually assault one of the officer’s wives and refused to get in the back of a squad car.
The arrest was Anderson’s second brush with the law in nine months. He was arrested in May 2017 at a Miami music festival and charged with felony resisting an officer with violence. That trial is set to start on Aug. 6.
Anderson joined the Jets organization in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Temple University. He earned a spot on the roster after raising eyebrows that preseason by leading all receivers with 13 catches for 264 yards and three touchdowns. After posting lukewarm numbers in his rookie regular season campaign, Anderson had a breakout year last season with 63 receptions for 941 yards and seven touchdowns.
