NFL defensive backs are not the only ones who deal with Robby Anderson's speed.
The New York Jets star wide receiver was no stranger to the Sunrise Police Department who arrested him on Jan. 19.
According to exclusively-obtained documents, Sunrise cops pulled over Anderson for excessively speeding in his 2017 Jaguar SUV twice prior to that arrest.
Last March, Anderson was clocked driving 86 mph in a 45 mph speed zone; Just 15 days later, Anderson was stopped again for allegedly going 82 mph in a 45 mph speed zone. Both incidents happened near Anderson's home in Sunrise.
Digging deeper into Anderson's history, his most recent arrest was actually his third, not second.
Anderson was arrested in 2014 by Hallandale Beach police for driving recklessly, resisting arrest without violence, and not carrying a license. He entered a no-contest plea and was ordered to attend driving school.
Also prior to 2017, Anderson was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol, Coral Springs PD, Pembroke Pines PD, Fort Lauderdale PD, and the Broward Sheriff's Office. All of his tickets were for driving infractions, including: not wearing a seatbelt, failing to obey a traffic signal, and driving on the wrong side of the road.
And to recap Anderson's last 10 months:
63 catches, 941 yards, 7 touchdowns
Two arrests (one at a Miami music festival, one following a traffic stop)
Three excessive-speeding tickets (105, 86, and 82 mph in a 45 mph zone)
One allegation of threatening to sexually assault an officer's wife, saying he would "n*t in her eye."
