What, no spoon?
Members of Braylon Edwards‘ entourage were allegedly involved in a fight with employees of a bar in Michigan, with Edwards’ pals stabbing one employee with a knife and another with a fork, according to a report by Fox 2 in Detroit. The man stabbed with a knife required 14 stitches.
The report clearly states that Edwards was not directly involved in the fight, though his Twitter feed offered up a pair of interesting comments during the night:
“Damn. Get ya knuckles ready”
“Don’t fight if. You don’t know how.”
Edwards, in true celebrity fashion, later claimed that his account was — you guessed it — hacked.
“Yo…Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets,” he claimed. “Deleted them and changed my password. Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!”
It’s not the first time Edwards, currently a free agent after the Jets opted to sign Plaxico Burress, has found himself in the news for the wrong reasons. When he was still on the Cleveland Browns in 2009, Edwards punched a friend of LeBron James at a Cleveland nightclub. He also was arrested last fall on DWI charges, and he pleaded guilty last month.
Now, on the other side of that, he did come through on a promise to pay $10,000 of college tuition for 100 Cleveland-area high school students if they maintained a 2.5 GPA. So he’s not all bad, he’s just prone to the occasional suspect decision — like hanging out with a guy who attacks a bar employee with a fork.

Nyjer Morgan is one strange dude. What’s weirder here: “Mr. Professional” or the random grunt at the end?
