An attorney representing New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson confirmed an arrest warrant for Anderson was lifted to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo Thursday.

According to Ed O'Donnell, a court in Broward County, Florida, had failed to notify Anderson he was due to appear Tuesday in connection with his reckless driving arrest in January. Anderson's next court date will now be July 19.

The New York Post's Brian Costello reported Wednesday that a warrant had been issued for Anderson. O'Donnell told Costello the situation would be resolved and that Anderson "did not do one thing wrong."

Although Anderson is still facing a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving, prosecutors dropped felony charges against him that stemmed from the incident. NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater reported prosecutors had originally considered charging Anderson with "fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active, threatening a public servant or family member, and speeding (third violation)."

Slater noted a spokesman for the Broward County State Attorney's office cited a "a possible discrepancy regarding the initial estimated speed" as the reason for downgrading Anderson's speeding charge. There was also insufficient evidence to support the other two.

In a separate case, Anderson is due in court Aug. 6 for a charge of felony resisting arrest after allegedly getting into a physical confrontation with authorities at a Miami music festival in May 2017.
