Braylon Edwards charged with assault

New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was charged with misdemeanor assault today in connection with an incident outside a Cleveland nightclub, the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting.

The charges stem from an accusation that Edwards punched a friend of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James. The incident took place shortly before Edwards was traded to the Jets from the Cleveland Browns.

The Plain Dealer reports that Edwards faces a sentence of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if he’s convicted of misdemeanor convicted.

Edwards had 10 catches for 139 yards in four games with the Browns. He
has nine catches for 118 yards in three games with the Jets.

    convicted of misdemeanor convicted?
    Ummmmmm one other point… need to fix the “days without an arrest” counter……he was charged, not arrested. I would think even a former lawyer would know the difference!

    Thats what you get for being a douchebag.
    Edwards had 343 drops with the Cleveland Browns, so far he has 5 with the Jets…more to follow, lots more.

    I would love it if he comes out with a public statement about the fine: “Wait, a G? thats it? no problem, I get 5 times that for wearing the wrong shoes to work”

    Why be jealous of L.James? I get it, the whole city loves him and they hate you. It makes sense for Edwards to be jealous, I mean if L.James can’t win in todays watered downed, overrated NBA then why should they love him more then Braylon? I get it Braylon, L.James is overrated and you should have gotten some love. The sad truth to all this is the poor Cleveland fan who just wants to win, may never win again. Keep the faith, your do. Just look at Philly, got a shot at back to back rings. No one ever thought that could happen.

    I wish I made millions of dollars thats exactly what I would be doing with all my money and time, blowing it on clubs and court costs.

    I wonder how soon Edwards will be charged with fraud also. We all know that he’s not a wide receiver, he just plays one (sometimes) on national TV.
    He sucks.

    OK, and, uh, Tom Cable escapes prosecution and league sanctions for breaking a fellow employee’s jaw exactly how? I can’t wait to hear the explanation for this.

    @tombrookshire, somebody needs to corroborate Hanson’s accusation …. somebody probably did that in this particular case

    But that was back in Cleveland. He lives in New York now so that doesn’t count anymore.
