Things aren’t looking too good for your boy Braylon Edwards:
Former Jets wideout Braylon Edwards is not in training camp with any NFL teams, but he may be in trouble again. Edwards, a free agent who recently pled guilty to a DWI in Manhattan, was allegedly involved in a melee at a bar in Birmingham, Mich., on Monday, according to a report by Observer and Eccentric, a newspaper in suburban Detroit. A spokesman for the Birmingham (Mich.) Police confirmed that investigators are looking into the matter.
“The case is evolving as we get more information,” a police spokesman said.
Edwards, 28, was reportedly in attendance with two cousins, Tre and Edmund Wright, when a fight broke out that resulted in one bouncer being stabbed in the neck with a fork and a second bouncer being stabbed in the hand with a pocketknife. The bar’s ownership told the newspaper that Edwards was directly involved, but refused to comment further in a statement.
The Wrights were arraigned on charges of felonious assault Monday. They pled not guilty. Edwards had not been charged as of Wednesday night. But the website Deadspin.com says that a bus boy will press charges against the free-agent wideout.
There were no serious injuries in the fight.
According to the Detroit Free Press, former Knicks guard Jalen Rose was at the bar and, a source told the paper, he tried to break up the brawl.
“Jalen was a true gentlemen,” one employee told the Free Press. Rose, who like Edwards is a University of Michigan product, has had his own legal troubles, sentenced to 20 days in prison for drunk driving.
A post on Edwards’ Twitter account around the time of the alleged brawl read: “Damn. Get ya knuckles ready” and “Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”
He later deleted the post and claimed that his account was hacked.
SMH…so cats are stabbing up people with forks and pocket knives these days??? Braylon needs to get his effin life together. Real talk.
