Titans' Britt pleads not guilty in Jersey

HOBOKEN, N.J. - Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt has pleaded not guilty to three disorderly person charges stemming from a June arrest in New Jersey. The judge set a Sept. 20 trial date.

Hoboken police had suspected Britt was carrying a marijuana cigar.

He entered his plea Tuesday in Hoboken Municipal Court and declined comment.

The former Rutgers star pleaded guilty last month to violations related to a speeding arrest in his hometown of Bayonne. He surrendered June 29 to Tennessee authorities on warrants alleging that he provided inaccurate information on driver's license applications.

Also, a man filed a civil lawsuit against Britt on June 27 seeking damages from a Nashville bar fight.
