Julian Edelman had an amazing season with the New England Patriots despite the fact that the team was eliminated from the playoff run. However, the wild-card loss isn’t the only problem Edelman has at the moment. The wideout got arrested.

was arrested Saturday night in Beverley Hills after jumping on the hood of a
Mercedes. The information was confirmed by several sources.
An unknown civilian
reported the incident to the police, and Edelman was later arrested for
misdemeanor vandalism. The wideout was released and left the police station
accompanied by his friends.
TMZ reported about the
incident. Police officers said Edelman was in Beverley Hills at 9 p.m. PT when

Edelman bear the consequences of his action? He damaged someone’s car, and that’s
not something you ignore. The car’s owner will have to make a decision. Is
Edelman facing a lawsuit?
