MIAMI (CBSMiami) – New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested over the weekend while attending an event in Miami.

Anderson, who went to South Plantation High School and has a permanent address in Davie, was charged with a felony count of resisting arrest with violence on Sunday night.

According to the arrest report, Anderson was asked to leave the Rolling Loud music festival and instead got into a fight with security.

After refusing to leave and being told to sit down, Anderson tensed his body and pushed a police officer.

He continued to fight with police while on the ground until he was subsequently arrested.

Anderson, 23, was also cited for obstructing a police officer.  He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on May 15th.

A rookie last season, Anderson caught 42 passes for 587 yards and two touchdowns for the Jets.

“We are aware of the situation,” a Jets spokesman said in a statement. “This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment at this time.”
