The man who has shown that he can’t catch a pass has proven that he can throw a punch.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns wideout Braylon Edwards is accused of assaulting Edward Givens at the View Night Club at 2:30 a.m. ET Monday.
A Cleveland-area event promoter, Givens explained the situation to the Plain Dealer: “After the club closed, I was outside greeting and saying goodbye to
people. Braylon comes up and started saying things, degrading me. He
said if it wasn’t for LeBron [James] or the Four Horsemen, I wouldn’t have what
I have, nor would I be able to get girls. Everyone knows Braylon has a
problem with LeBron. So I had to speak up for myself. The conversation
started to escalate. As some of his teammates started to pull him back,
he punched me. I have a black eye and a cut. I’m not a violent guy.
“As long as I’ve known Braylon, I’ve allowed him and his friends to
come into our events free of charge. Whatever jealousy he has with
LeBron, he felt he needed to take it out on me.”
So, basically, Cleveland apparently isn’t big enough for Braylon and LeBron. It shouldn’t be a problem for long. At the rate he’s currently playing, Braylon will only have about 12 more games there.
Per the Plain Dealer, simple assault cases are not investigated by police. Instead, the victim must file a complaint directly with the prosecutor.
