Jets Player Arrested On DUI Charges
September 21, 2010
New York (ChattahBox Sports News) – NY Jets player Braylon Edwards was arrested in Manhattan this morning for driver under the influence, after he was found to be twice over the legal limit for the state.
Edwards was originally pulled over because of ‘excessively tinted windows’, and when the officer approached him there were signs that he was inebriated. He asked him to take a breathalyzer, and found that his blood-alcohol level was at 0.16, or double the legal amount for operating a vehicle.
The NY Jets website had a statement shortly after about the incident, saying they were “very disappointed” in his behavior, and that they are seeking advice on how to properly punish him in the League for the lapse.
They also pointed out that there is a driver program available to all players, with trained security, many former police officers, who are a call away if a way home is needed. Also, with the cash that Edwards brings in, you would think he could afford a cab home.
