Civil Lawsuit Filed Against Former Titans WR Kenny Britt

CREATED Jun 5, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A civil lawsuit seeking thousands of dollars in damages has been filed against a well-known former Tennessee Titans wide receiver.

The suit was filed this week in Davidson County against Kenny Britt by alleged victim Harold Pointer. It stems from an incident at Karma Lounge in downtown Nashville dating back to October 2010 when Britt was still playing for the Titans.

Police investigated a scuffle involving several patrons. Pointer claimed Britt punched him in the head, but Britt denied that and police never brought criminal charges against him.

Pointer filed the civil lawsuit in Davidson County stating "Britt appeared agitated and drunken and out of control.” It claims that Britt "approached Pointer and struck him on his head repeatedly,” leaving him bleeding from his face and head.

According to the lawsuit, which also names two other parties, Pointer is seeking $100,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.

Britt was drafted by the Titans in 2009 and caught 42 passes in his first two seasons. In 2010, he was briefly sidelined with an ACL injury. He had several arrests while playing for the Titans, and was punished by the NFL for some of those incidents. He did not dress for his final four games with the Titans last season.

In March, he signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis Rams, where he’ll again be working with former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher.
