An NFL star who was unhappy that a cop did not allow him to walk free after a traffic stop threatened to rape the officer’s wife.

New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson, 24, was pulled over at 2:15 a.m., on Friday, by Officer Jonathan B. Hennessy in Sunrise, Florida.

According to officer Hennessy, Anderson was driving 105 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone.

When Hennessy tried to put Anderson in his patrol car, the wide receiver resisted and refused to enter.

Anderson, who earned $540,000 with the Jets this past season, bragged to the officer about how much money he had and how all he was doing was trying to “ruin his fun.”

Anderson then told the officer that he was going to find his wife and rape her once he was released from jail.

“He continued making other verbal threats against my family. Based on his statements, it was clear that he intended to sexually assault my wife,” Hennessy wrote in a police report.

This was not the first time that Anderson was arrested. In May, he was arrested at a music festival after pushing an officer during a dispute.

Anderson faces 9 charges, including threatening a public servant or family member, fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active, reckless driving, and resisting arrest without violence
