BAYONNE, N.J. — Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt was arrested in his hometown Tuesday after an officer reported seeing him speeding.

Britt, 22, faces charges of eluding the officer, hindering apprehension and obstructing governmental function, Bayonne Police Chief Robert Kubert said.

Britt was driving his Porsche at 71 mph in a 50-mph zone Tuesday, said Kubert, who said Britt drove away from the officer and was eventually found on a side street walking away from the car. Kubert said Britt denied being in the car, then denied driving and finally admitted he was behind the wheel.
