Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested on nine separate charges in Sunrise, Florida, early Friday morning and threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer’s wife, according to records from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Anderson, 24, was arrested at 2:15 a.m. Friday and charged with resisting an officer/obstruction without violence; harm to a public servant or family; fleeing/eluding while lights/siren active; reckless driving; failure to drive in a single lane; two counts of disobeying/avoiding a red light; speeding; and turning without a signal, according to the arrest report obtained by Newsday.

The report said that when Anderson was taken into custody, “he began to brace, tense and refuse” to get into the back of the police vehicle. While in the back of the police vehicle, Anderson made the sexual assault threat toward the arresting officer’s wife and made “other verbal threats” toward the officer’s family, the report said.

The report indicated that Anderson was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Anderson’s white SUV was going 105 mph in a 45-mph zone for three-quarters of a mile and ran two red lights with the police officer in pursuit, the report said. “The driver was all over the roadway and failed to maintain a single lane on numerous occasions,” according to police.

Once Anderson was pulled over and started to exit his vehicle, it continued to roll forward because it was not in park, the arrest report said. When Anderson was asked by police why he was driving so recklessly and refused to stop, he invoked “his rights to speak with a lawyer,” the report said. It also said Anderson bragged about how much money he has and told the officer he was trying to “ruin his fun.”

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

Anderson was arrested last year in Miami at a concert and charged with a felony count of resisting an officer with violence to his person and obstruction of justice, according to a police report from the City of Miami Police Department. He has a scheduled March 19 court date for that incident.

Anderson led the Jets with 941 receiving yards last season.
