JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt is due in a New Jersey courtroom to answer a charge stemming from his second arrest in the state.

He's charged with resisting during a June 8 arrest in Hoboken when detectives suspected he was carrying a marijuana cigar.

Prosecutors say Britt may not appear at Thursday's hearing in Jersey City, but instead may have his lawyer file papers.

Britt pleaded guilty last week to motor vehicle violations related to a previous speeding arrest in his native Bayonne.

The former Rutgers star also has two arrest warrants outstanding in Tennessee. They were issued April 14 by the Tennessee Highway Patrol. It's also investigating an issue on Britt's driver's license applications.

His attorney has said Britt will be in Tennessee soon to deal with the warrants.
