National Football League player threatened to sexually assault officer's wife during arrest, police say

Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested early Friday morning in Florida and is facing nine charges, the Broward (Fla.) County Sherriff's Office confirmed to the New York Daily News.

According to the Sunrise police report, Anderson fled from police during a traffic stop and was traveling 105 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone.

It's one thing to make a dumb mistake like speeding and then face the consequences, it's another when you get into a vehicle chase with the police involving lights and sirens everywhere and threaten to sexually assault an officer's wife when you get caught. Anderson's specific actions that led to the arrest are unclear at the moment, but the Broward County Sheriff's Department has the charges listed on their website. The confrontation went to the ground until Anderson was arrested.

Anderson was also arrested on a felony charge of resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of police past year after an altercation at a concert in Miami.

On continental level, the Black Stars still hold the eighth position in Africa, ahead of the Super Eagles and Algeria (57). That means Italy remain in 14th place, with Croatia moving above England and Mexico to sit behind the Azzurri in 15th.

But Anderson, the club's leading receiver last season, was the team's most risky playmaker.

Anderson had a breakout season for the Jets in 2017, recording 63 catches over 900 yards and seven touchdowns. The NFL usually waits until a player's legal situation is resolved before it hands out any discipline. Todd Bowles will need to submit to putting his star receiver under wraps for a brief period of time, unlike the last time.

Even before Anderson's latest arrest, it seemed possible the Jets could explore signing a prominent receiver in free agency (Jarvis Landry?), considering how much salary cap space they have. Quincy Enunwa will return from neck surgery in 2018, but it remains unclear if he'll be as productive as he was before his injury.

It will certainly be interesting to see how the Jets and the National Football League handle this situation.
