Titans' Britt arrested on DUI charge

Kenny Britt has run into trouble with the law again after being arrested following an incident early Friday.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt was arrested Friday at a military base and charged with driving under the influence.

Officials say Britt was arrested at Fort Campbell military base in Kentucky after failing a field sobriety test.

"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts," the Titans said in a statement.

Fort Campbell director of public affairs Bob Jenkins said Britt failed a field sobriety test at 3:30 a.m. when he tried to enter the base. Britt was later released.

"The incident is under investigation, and further comments are inappropriate for us to make at this time," Jenkins said. "We have contacted the Tennessee Titans and we ask that you direct further media inquiries through the Titans."

Britt has a long history of trouble with the law and narrowly avoided being suspended last year after arrests that occurred during the NFL lockout.

The former first-round draft pick from Rutgers is coming off left knee surgery -- his second knee surgery in three months. He also had surgery on his right knee in May.

For his career, Britt has caught 101 passes for 1,765 yards and 15 touchdowns.
