Braylon Edwards WR New York Jets
Braylon Edwards and his awesome beard were apparently drinking at teammate and fellow wideout Jericho Cotchery's charity event before his DUI. Its also been released that he had 2 teammates in his vehicle while he was driving drunk, LT D'Brickashaw Furgeson, and DE/OLB/Bust Vernon Gholston. Also released, is Edward's semi-cross eyed mugshot for the world to enjoy. From Deadspin -- the Jets also introduced just a week ago a car service for drunk players.
Good Try Update: Braylon during the arrest said to the officer, "I had a couple of drinks, We were just coming home from a party. What about if I just leave the car and take a cab and go home?"
Update: Braylon has came out and spoke about his DUI arrest, saying:
“The bad thing about this situation is I never drive in New York, One I don’t know where the heck I’m going and two the roads are too bumpy and the traffic is crazy. I usually always have a chauffeur, but it was a random situation where I went to a teammates event and stepped out after that. Why I got pulled over wasn’t even because of erratic driving or suspicion of intoxicated driving, it was for tinted windows, which was B.S. Things happen, but you learn from it, No matter if you drove there, you’ve gotta make sure you have someone drive you back. Whether it’s a cab, friend, or whatnot. Just don’t put yourself in that position. You learn from it.”
Sounds like a man who has clearly learned from his mistakes.
