Video Shows Julian Edelman With Paul Pierce Hours After Being Arrested

It sure doesn’t look like Julian Edelman went home and kept a low profile after being arrested.

The New England Patriots receiver reportedly was arrested Saturday night for vandalism in Beverly Hills. Edelman eventually was cited for a misdemeanor and released by police, though it remains to be seen whether he will face charges.

TMZ Sports reports Edelman was apprehended around 9 p.m. PT, roughly two hours before appearing in a video on Paul Pierce’s Instagram story.

Take a look:

And then there’s this post, which shows Edelman with Pierce and former Patriots receiver Danny Amendola:

It’s unclear whether this was posted before or after Edelman’s reported arrest. Furthermore, it’s possible Pierce recorded the video with Edelman before the arrest and simply posted it later in the evening, though that scenario seems unlikely.
