Report: Former Temple wideout Robby Anderson to have felony charge dropped

The charge was connected to Anderson’s arrest at the Rolling Loud music festival in May 2017 in Miami.

The felony resisting arrest charge against former Temple wide receiver Robby Anderson from a May 2017 arrest in Miami will be dropped, Anderson’s attorney told NFL Network on Wednesday.

Anderson faced the charge for allegedly pushing a police officer after getting into a fight with security at the Rolling Loud music festival. The closeout memo from the State Attorney’s Office in Miami states that Anderson wasn’t being allowed backstage despite having a backstage pass, the Miami Herald reported. In the memo, none of the other officers present confirmed that Anderson allegedly pushed Capt. Javier Ortiz.

Anderson, who led Temple in receiving as a senior in 2015 and led the New York Jets in receiving in 2017, still faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving from a January arrest in Sunrise, Florida.
