Tennessee NFL player Greene arrested on resisting stop charge

Tennessee Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested for allegedly parking in a handicapped space and speeding away when an officer was issuing him a citation. Franklin, Tennessee, police Sgt. Charles Warner said Greene surrendered Friday night after being told warrants had been obtained for his arrest.

After law enforcement informed the Titans of the alleged incidents involving the running back, Greene turned himself in and was charged with failure to stop, reckless driving and illegal parking. He was released on $2,000 bail.

ESPN reported that despite Greene’s run-in with the law, he is listed as probable and may play in Sunday’s game against the AFC South rival Houston Texans.

The Titans released a statement Saturday saying that the team was aware of Greene’s alleged actions and have spoken to him about it.

“We have talked to Shonn and are aware of the reports,” the statement read. “This is not the type of behavior we expect from any member of our organization. We will continue to gather additional information as it becomes available and handle the matter internally.”
