Lawyer: Jets WR Anderson no longer facing felony charge

Sports Xchange - Thursday 17th May, 2018

Prosecutors in Florida will drop a felony resisting arrest charge against New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson, his attorney told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo on Wednesday.

Ed O'Donnell told Garafolo that the charge against his client for a May 2017 arrest will be formally dropped in the coming days.

Anderson was charged with felony resisting arrest with violence after being arrested in Miami on May 7, 2017. Police accused Anderson of pushing an officer after he got into a fight with security officials at an event in the city.

Anderson still faces a misdemeanor count of reckless driving in connection to a Jan. 19 arrest in Sunrise, Fla. He was facing multiple felony charges stemming from that incident before prosecutors dropped most of the counts against him.

If convicted, Anderson faces a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail or 90 days of probation, according to the state attorney.

Anderson played all 16 games for the Jets last season, making 63 catches for 941 yards and seven touchdowns.
