The incident took place Saturday night at approximately 9:00pm EST., as he was later released by the police after his arrest. The wideout is scheduled to appear in court at the Airport Courthouse on April 13th. What adds to the interesting point of this night is that Edelman appeared on the Instagram of former Boston Celtics star and current ESPN NBA analyst Paul Pierce, in a photo with Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola. Edelman and Amendola were teammates with the Patriots three years ago.
It is already bound to be an interesting off-season for the Patriots, with Tom Brady expected to become a free agent for the first time in his career. Edelman has been Brady's favorite target over the last couple years, compiling 100 catches for 1,117 yards and six touchdowns this past season. He also won the MVP of Super Bowl LIII, which was a comeback win in overtime over the Atlanta Falcons. Although he may have someone else throwing him the ball come next season, he first has some legal issues to figure out right around draft time.
