The arrest warrant for Jets WR Robby Anderson has been lifted, according to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo. Neither Anderson or his attorney were made aware of the court date, which is why he missed his hearing to address a reckless driving charge. However, attorney Ed O'Donnell said there was a "clerical error" and Anderson was never notified about the court date. As of now, a court date is set for July 19.

"I received no notice", O'Donnell told the New York Daily News. So neither he nor Anderson was in court.

Anderson, who turns 25 next week, was pulled over at 2:15 a.m. on January 19 in Sunrise, Florida, for driving 105 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone and running two red lights, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office police report. Once in custody, police said, he refused to get in the back of the police vehicle and, once he was in the auto, used profanity and made a sexual reference to the officer's wife.

An arrest warrant has been issued in South Florida for Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson, according to Andy Slater.




According to the the police report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office, Anderson 'stated that when he got out he was going to find [the officer's] wife, f*** her and n** in her eye'.

Prosecutors last month, however, dropped the felony charges and said they were only pursuing one misdemeanor count of reckless driving.

The appearance stemmed from Anderson's January arrest for reckless driving. He also was arrested in May 2017 at a musical festival in Miami Beach.

Anderson led the Jets with 941 yards and seven touchdowns on 63 receptions last season.
