Braylon Edwards Arrested

Sorry to Mr. K if this is the first place he heard this:

Jets' star-receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested this morning for Drinking and Driving.  This could potentially lead to jail time and a sizable suspension by the league.

The rest from Fox:
 A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that Edwards was pulled over on the west side of Manhattan around 5:15 a.m. Tuesday because his vehicle had excessive tinting on its windows. The official says police noticed a strong smell of alcohol and arrested Edwards. The official was not authorized to speak about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

In January, Edwards was put on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor aggravated disorderly conduct in Cleveland.

Edwards was expected to be arraigned later Tuesday.

"We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning," Mike Tannenbaum, general manager of the Jets, said in a statement on the team's website. "The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this program and showed poor judgment.

"We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures."

Just before he was traded to the Jets from the Browns in October 2009, Edwards was accused of punching a friend of basketball star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub.

Edwards settled the case by pleading no contest to aggravated assault. He received a suspended 180-day jail sentence, and was fined $1,000 and placed on probation.
