Braylon Edwards arrested for DUI

http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/news/story?id=5598872

New York Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested on a drunken driving charge in New York early Tuesday morning.

The Jets expressed their disappointment in the receiver in a statement from general manager Mike Tannenbaum on Tuesday.

"We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning. The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this program and showed poor judgment," Tannenbaum said.

"We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures."

The 27-year-old Edwards was pulled over for having overly tinted windows in his Range Rover. He was arrested at 5:15 a.m. after police smelled alcohol and administered a breathalyzer. According to the New York Post, Edwards blew .16 on the breathalyzer -- a blood-alcohol content that is twice the legal limit.





I didnt know this but the NFL has a safe ride program and Jets owner Woody Johnson funded another program called player protect. So he had 2 opitions all he had to do was make a call. These programs are at no cost to the player

wow, so he's even more of an idiot than I thought. My broke ass even grabs a taxi if I'm too drunk. On night we know we're gonna party hard, we get a limo. A bunch of us pitch in, doesn't come out pricey at all.
Forget the illegality or the chance of harming another driver or a pedestrian ... what about self-preservation? If he gets into a huge accident, in the prime of his career, he might never play football again and lose millions of dollars.

C'mon son.

There are so many reasons for an NFL player not to drive drunk, and the free options make him seem even stupider.

he's an idiot of-course. but now he's subjected to fines under substance abuse policy. what gets to me is how there's nothing being done to deter folks from drinking/drugs period. but once a player is busted by the law Roger Go2Hell and NFL is quick to fine these cats just to get a cut and put money in their pockets. arse backwards society. like Roger and the NFL don't know if folks already drink.
