Patriots fans reacting Sunday after wide receiver Julian Edelman was arrested Saturday night in Beverly Hills, California.
Edelman was arrested and cited for misdemeanor vandalism after a night out with two former Boston athletes, Boston Celtics’ Paul Pierce and former Pats wide receiver Danny Amendola.
The Beverly Hills Police department say Edelman damaged a parked vehicle by jumping on it’s hood around 9 p.m. Saturday night.
“Well it looks like they had a good time huh? What are you going to do?” said Jim Russell, a Patriots fan. “Let loose, as long as nobody was injured bad, I mean a misdemeanor, he should be acting better than that but that’s what alcohol does.”
TMZ sports first reported the arrest, that the vehicle was a Mercedes and it was apparent Edelman was drinking prior.
Edelman was released later Saturday night on a citation, and is scheduled to appear in court in California on April 13th.
He is also facing two surgeries in the offseason.
