Julian Edelman arrest: Possible repercussions for Patriots WR

48 0


New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman would have been playing football this weekend had the Patriots defeated the Tennessee Titans in their wildcard game on Jan. 4.

Instead, the Titans played—and defeated—the Ravens, 28–12, in the divisional round matchup on Saturday night in Baltimore. About 2,700 miles away, Edelman had an eventful evening with friends in Beverly Hills.

For part of the evening, Edelman hung out with his former Patriots teammate, Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola, and retired Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce. Pierce posted a photo on Instagram of the three men dining at Cantina Frida, a Mexican restaurant, at around 9 p.m. PT. It’s unclear whether the photo was taken at that time or earlier. Pierce also posted a video of Edelman, Amendola and himself at around 11 p.m. Like with Pierce’s photo, it’s not known when his video was recorded.

What is known is that 9 p.m. proved to be a problematic stretch of the evening for Edelman, a native of Redwood, Calif. It was during that hour when Beverly Hills police arrested the 33-year-old MVP of Super Bowl LII while he was on North Beverly Drive. Edelman was seen jumping on the hood of another person’s Mercedes-Benz. He was cited with misdemeanor vandalism and, according to The Boston Globe, released at the scene. The jumping, reports TMZ Sports, caused unspecified damage to the car’s hood.
