New York Jets star Robbie Anderson was arrested Sunday night at the Rolling Loud Festival in downtown Miami.
Anderson, who turns 24 Wednesday, was charged with resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of a police officer, according to records.
Anderson, a blazing-fast wide receiver from South Plantation High School in Broward County, was signed by the Jets a year ago as an undrafted free agent. He finished his promising rookie season with 42 catches for more than 500 yards.
Now, Anderson’s in a world of hurt, accused of fighting with security at the incident-marred hip-hop festival at about 6 p.m. at Bayfront Park. The weekend-long festival featured top acts like Kendrick Lamar and Gucci Mane.

According to police records, Anderson refused to leave the festival when ordered to by security, who called real cops. When Miami Police Lt. Javier Ortiz arrived, Ortiz ordered Anderson to sit on the ground, according to the probable cause affidavit.
“The defendant tensed his body and pushed Lt. Ortiz,” the affidavit reads. “He was redirected to the ground [that’s cop for thrown to the ground] and continued to fight with police and security. The defendant was arrested.”
Anderson was to appear before a judge at 1:30 p.m. Monday, the paperwork reads.
Ortiz, meanwhile, is just back from disciplinary desk duty. The local Fraternal Order of Police boss, Ortiz was stripped from his gun and ordered to desk duty after a judge granted a restraining order against Ortiz. The lieutenant allegedly harassed a woman who used social media to report another cop who was speeding. Ortiz retaliated by posting her phone number and personal information on social media.
“He is a lunatic with a gun and badge,” the woman, Claudia Castillo, said of Ortiz when she filed the restraining order.
About the time Anderson was arrested, meanwhile, an unruly crowd caused the postponement of a Migos concert and shutdown of a stage.
