Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt has had yet another run-in with the law, according to 104.5 The Zone. Per the report, the 23-year-old was arrested for DUI early Friday morning at the Fort Campbell Military Base, an Army installation located on the boarder of Kentucky and Tennessee.

The report was later confirmed by ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

release comment on Britt incident: “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts.”

According to Wyatt, this is Britt's eighth incident with the police since being drafted in 2009. He was arrested twice within a few months during last year's NFL lockout. In April, he was arrested after a car chase and was charged with eluding and lying to an officer hindering apprehension. Later in June, Britt was busted for resisting arrest a day after he made a court appearance. Police had suspected that he was carrying a marijuana cigar.

Britt is one of several NFL players to be arrested for drunk driving this offseason, including Marshawn Lynch, Justin Blackmon and Aaron Berry.
