Patriots’ Julian Edelman Reportedly Arrested For Vandalism In Beverly Hills

UPDATE (11:40 A.M. ET): ESPN’s Mike Reiss has confirmed TMZ’s report of Julian Edelman’s arrest Saturday night. Reiss also has revealed when Edelman is due in court.

ORIGINAL STORY: Julian Edelman has some explaining to do.

The New England Patriots receiver was arrested Saturday night in Beverly Hills after being seen jumping on the hood of someone’s Mercedes, according to TMZ Sports. An unknown civilian reported the incident to nearby police, who apprehended Edelman and later issued him a citation for misdemeanor vandalism.

The 33-year-old eventually was released and reportedly left the police station with his friends.

From TMZ’s report:

“Law enforcement sources tell us it went down this way … Julian was in Bev Hills walking around at around 9 p.m. PT when for some unknown reason he hopped up on the car, causing damage. Bad news for Julian … cops were in the area working a robbery case, when someone flagged them down and gave them the low down.”

It remains to be seen whether the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office will file criminal charges against Edelman.

The star receiver is a week removed the Patriots’ season-ending loss to the Tennessee Titans. Edelman reportedly will undergo knee and shoulder injuries this offseason.
