Robby, for some unknown reason at this time, was asked to leave the event, according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

Anderson, 23, was charged with felony resisting arrest with violence as well as misdemeanor obstruction of a police officer, WINZ-AM reported Sunday.

Miami police arrested wide receiver Robby Anderson during the Rolling Loud Festival. The police report stated that there was no indication he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


In a statement to The Associated Press, the Jets said they're "aware of the situation", but have no comment.

In his rookie season, Anderson recorded 42 receptions for 587 yards and two touchdowns. He could find himself on the roster bubble this summer after the Jets drafted wide receivers in the third and fourth rounds, and the legal trouble may not help his cause.

This has been a turbulent offseason for some of the Jets' young pass-catchers.


Anderson joined the Jets as an undrafted free agent before the 2016 season. The weekend long festival featured top acts like Kendrick Lamar and Gucci Mane as well as unruly crowds and a lack of water. He started eight games for the team last season.

Anderson, who turns 24 years old on Tuesday, played his college football at Temple University. In a pre-file conference, prosecutors speak to the investigating officer, victim and witnesses and review available forensic reports.
