FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. – Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt was taken into custody at Fort Campbell on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to officials.

Fort Campbell said that Britt was stopped at 3:30 a.m. Friday at Gate 4 the main entrance.

The Military Police officers at the gate were suspicious, and said he showed intoxication during a field sobriety test. An official said he refused a breathalyzer.

He was charged with DUI and implied consent, then released on his own recognizance. The vehicle he was driving was impounded, and he was escorted off post.

The charge will be filed with the Central Violations Bureau in Kentucky, and he will be assigned a court date to appear at the U.S. District Court on post at Fort Campbell.

"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more facts," the Titans said in a team statement.

Britt was arrested for three separate incidents in 2011 alone, and this arrest makes his eighth incident with police since he was drafted in 2009.

In February, he pleaded guilty to a downgraded charge of disturbing the peace stemming from an arrest in New Jersey. Britt had faced several charges in the June 2011 arrest at a car wash, where police said they suspected him of carrying a marijuana cigar. Police claimed Britt crushed the cigar and disposed of it. It was not found.

He previously pleaded guilty to a speeding arrest in his hometown of Bayonne and had two arrest warrants in Tennessee for inaccurate information on his driver's license applications. Those misdemeanor charges were later dropped.

He met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell last August, who chose not to suspend Britt after his repeated incidents that occurred during the NFL lockout.

Britt played just three games for the Titans last season with 17 catches for 289 yards and three touchdowns before hurting his right knee against Denver.

Britt is recovering from his second arthroscopic surgery since May on his knees, with the latest on his left.

He had surgery on the right knee when he tore his ACL and MCL last September.

He has 101 catches for 1,765 yards and 15 touchdowns in 31 career games.

Tennessee drafted receiver Kendall Wright of Baylor at No. 20 in April.
