Patriots’ Julian Edelman has vandalism charges dropped
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will not be prosecuted for misdemeanor vandalism charges according to a report by TMZ Sports.
Edelman was arrested Jan. 11 in Beverly Hills, Calif. for jumping on top of the hood of a Mercedes-Benz and was set to appear in court Monday. The unnamed owner of the car dropped the charges because “he has been fully compensated for the repair costs to the vehicle,” according to TMZ.
The incident occurred only one week after the Patriots were eliminated in the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs by the Tennessee Titans. The 33-year-old was out on the town in Beverly Hills with former Celtics star Paul Pierce and former Patriots teammate Danny Amendola.
Edelman is coming off one of his most productive seasons in a career that began with the Patriots after being selected in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft. The former college quarterback caught 100 passes for 1,117 yards with six touchdowns in 16 games as the go-to target for quarterback Tom Brady, who left the Patriots after 20 years to sign a free-agent deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Just hours before the prosecutors dropped the charges, Edelman posted a video on social media from his house and wearing a Celtics No. 11 jersey urged the people of Boston to hang in
