Jets WR Robby Anderson's felony resisting arrest charge dropped

Jets WR Robby Anderson's felony resisting arrest charge dropped

Robby Anderson had his felony resisting arrest with violence charges stemming from a 2017 incident in Florida dropped on Wednesday.

It's not easy bouncing back when one gets arrested twice in a span of less than a year but such is the case with Anderson.

Last month, Anderson had felony charges against him dropped in connection with a January arrest in Broward County (Fla.) during which he allegedly fled from a cop at 105 miles per hour and then threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer's wife.

Anderson's problems with the law aren't completely over just yet, though.

Housing starts fall flat in April
A hoped-for spring surge in homebuilding to relieve a worsening national housing shortage didn't materialize in April, U.S. Single family starts (894,000 SAAR) were up 0.1% from March while the multifamily sector (393,000) declined 11.3%.

While that felony may be dropped, Anderson still is facing charges from a January arrest where he was accused of resisting arrest and threatening a public servant's family. But with that charge dropped, Anderson now faces no charges in connection with the incident.

Despite his recent run-ins with the law, it seems that Anderson will remain with the Jets for this upcoming season. He also finished the year with 63 catches and seven touchdowns.

The Jets stuck with Anderson throughout the offseason, even while the legal system was still sorting evidence and police statements to determine any and all consequences he'd face.
