Over the years, former NFL receiver Braylon Edwards has had an off-field issue or two. His latest incident reportedly occurred at a Detroit nightclub over the weekend.
The video, as posted by TMZ, shows Edwards confronting a much smaller man. Eventually, Edwards seems to knock the man down by taking him out at the ankles.
The alleged victim supposedly had taped Edwards in a different confrontation, with Edwards insisting that the man delete the video.
The man has filed battery charges. Edwards has denied wrongdoing on Twitter.
“The reports are blasphemy,” Edwards said. (Every resident of Ohio simultaneously has asked us to point out that Edwards went to college at Michigan.) “Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn’t harmed at all.
“Also there were many officers in attendance at the alleged incident, and never stepped in, because there was no wrong doing.”
Um, the video seems to speak for itself. Under the strict, legal definition of the term, the video seems to show a battery.
“This is another case of some[one] trying to ‘come up’ off a persons status,” Edwards also said on Twitter. “My name will be cleared of this nonsense soon. Story is ridiculous.”
Again, watch the video. Something happened. Though Edwards may not face charges, it’s impossible based on the evidence to call the story “ridiculous.”
