Official: Jets’ Edwards arrested on DWI charge

NEW YORK — New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been arrested in Manhattan on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that Edwards was pulled over on the west side of Manhattan around 5:15 a.m. Tuesday because his vehicle had excessive tinting on its windows. The official says police noticed a strong smell of alcohol and arrested Edwards. The official was not authorized to speak about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

In January, Edwards was put on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor aggravated disorderly conduct in Cleveland.

Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement that the Jets are disappointed and “will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures.” He says Edwards showed poor judgment.
