New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was reportedly arrested in California on Saturday night for allegedly jumping on the hood of a vehicle and causing damage to it.
The incident, in which an unidentified person’s Mercedes-Benz was damaged, took place in Beverly Hills around 9 p.m, according to TMZ Sports. Police were in the area at the time working on a separate robbery case when they were flagged down by a bystander.
It’s unclear why Edelman decided to hop on the hood of someone’s car, but TMZ reports that police suspected he had been drinking. The Los Angeles County District Attorney will now decide whether or not to proceed with charges, though it seems like the type of case Edelman could easily settle by writing a check to the owner of the vehicle.
Edelman had one awesome play during New England’s loss to the Titans, but he also had a key dropped a pass that killed a drive. He battled injuries throughout the season and is expected to have surgeries on both his shoulder and knee this offseason. He also has some legal trouble to sort out.
