Cleveland radio contributor gets questioned in Edwards case

Authorities might have cracked open the case of the cold-cocked colleague of LeBron James.

And they did it without bringing in Sherlock Holmes or Scooby Doo or Inspector Gadget.

They did it by listening to the radio.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Sabrina Parr, a contributor on the local ESPN Radio joint in Cleveland (WKNR), witnessed the incident between Braylon Edwards and Edward Givens, during which (as Givens alleges) Edwards punched the 120-pound (as LeBron alleges) friend of the local NBA star.

And Ms. Parr went on the air Wednesday to say what she had seen.

She said that she saw Edwards eavesdropping on a conversation involving Givens and someone else regarding LeBron James, that Edwards approached Givens and said he’d be nothing without James, and that Edwards thereafter punched Givens.

As a result, Parr has been questioned by police.

We wonder whether Parr asked the police who questioned her why the police who were in the vicinity of the incident — and possibly might have seen it themselves — merely shooed everyone away without determining what had happened and who had seen it and what they had seen.

Because that’s precisely what we heard occurred.

Specifically, we’re told that police were in the immediate area of the altercation, and that they did nothing other than clear the scene.

Parr also said she had spoken with Edwards that evening, and that he had said “disparaging things” about the coaching staff and the quarterbacks.

So while Braylon is Broadway’s problem now, this remaining piece of Cleveland business apparently isn’t going away as quietly as he’d like.

    NY media has more heavy lifting to do.

    wow, which way to go on this one…
    – LeBron owns Cleveland so completely that he can get a disgruntled player run out of town… ON ANOTHER TEAM IN A DIFFERENT LEAGUE
    – Braylon Edwards adds to his already considerable douchiness by punching someone much smaller than himself
    – Cops indifferent to questionable or illegal conduct by star pro athletes
    – Sports-talk radio finally has social relevance by bringing a criminal to justice
    Boy, talk about a target-rich environment!

    This chick has absolutely no credibility, shes an alcoholic money grubber that chases around athletes in Cleveland. She is even less credible than that D-bag Tony Rizzo that had her on his show.
    I don’t know what Brandon McDonald was thinking when he took Sabrina Parr home, she’s not even cute.

    FWIW, Sabrina is a once a week contributor to the Rally Big Show with Tony Rizzo, who hosted Jim Rome’s show a few Thursday’s ago.

    Mike,
    As a lawyer, I thought you might add some perspective as to the wisdom of getting on the radio and detailing an ongoing criminal matter such as this.
    As a media member, I thought you might add some perspective as to the wisdom of getting on the radio and detailing a private, off-the-record conversation with a local athlete while holding a gig in the local media.
    Seems dumb on both counts to me.

    What a tool
    How many passes will he drop or miss before Sanchez takes a dive at his knees?

    the reason why the cops cleared the scene is because it wasn’t that damn serious. some dude gets punched, move along, nothing to see here.

    Can you say “LeBron in NYC 2010″ ?

    This is a non-story turned into a story by some D-bag Patriots fan that runs a football based web site out of his parents garage!
    Why is this even news? So some pussy got punched in the head… big F_ing deal. $hit like this happens all the time.
    You all are acting like Edwards shanked someone.

    ————————————————– If Edwards shanked someone that would mean that the knife didnt drop out of his hand. : )

    Actually tacious, he’s a Steelers fan.

    The Browns and Edwards both suck. Hey, mike some of that PFT gear is pretty sweet! Do you know if that infant body suit comes in the Steelers colors and say in a adult XXL. Thanks I’ll check back with you.

    So if someone punches you out, it’s OK…right?

    Wow, it’s nice to see the Plain Dealer can actually get the “scoop” on something involving the Browns. Cabot and Grossi got scooped big-time on Edwards being traded by Adam Schefter of ESPN and they’re constantly beaten on Browns stories by other national media. Two Browns reporters and they don’t have a clue. If the paper had a clue, it would move Doug Lesmerisis, a real reporter, off the OSU beat and make him the sole Browns reporter.

    LBJ aint goin to NY now. Might have a run in with Edwards. Nice move Mangini

    “LBJ aint goin to NY now. Might have a run in with Edwards. Nice move Mangini ”
    I don’t think Lebron is afraid od Edwards. He would kick his ass as bad as Crowder would kicks Cornflorio’s ass.

    First off, everyone (other than you of course) knows that Florio is a Steelers fan not a Patriots fan.
    Secondly, Are you not old enough to have learned that it is not ok to put your hands on anyone? It does not require a weapon to make it a crime DBAG.
    Are you really THAT dumb?
