Jets WR Robby Anderson’s arrest warrant lifted after clerical error by court
According to a report from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson received some good news on Thursday the warrant for his arrest was lifted due to a clerical error by the Broward County court.
Anderson’s defense attorney, Ed O’Donnell, told the Daily News that there was a miscommunication with the case’s change from the circuit court to the county court.
“Robby did not do anything wrong,” O’Donnell said. “It’s not like he just said, ‘No, I’m not going to court.’ Believe me. I didn’t go to court, either. Because nobody knew to be there.”
The 24-year-old New York receiver faces a misdemeanor reckless driving charge and four additional traffic violations from his January arrest down in Miami.
Throughout all the legal turmoil, Jets CEO Christopher Johnson continues to be one of Anderson’s biggest supporters over the past few months.
“I’m really hopeful that Robby will put this kind of thing behind him,” Johnson said at the annual league meeting in March. “And that he will be the kind of person — forget about his playing … he’s an incredible football player — that he’ll be the kind of person all around that will make people proud to wear a No. 11 jersey.”
Anderson, who was an undrafted free agent out of Temple University in 2016, had a very good breakout 2017-18 season for New York. He led the Jets with 941 receiving yards as well as seven touchdown receptions. He was also second on the team in catches with 63 receptions in 16 regular season games.
