CLEVELAND, Ohio — Former Browns receiver Braylon Edwards was charged with misdemeanor assault today in connection with an incident outside a downtown nightclub several weeks ago, a source close to the investigation says.
Edwards was traded to the New York Jets days after he was accused of punching entertainment promoter Edward Givens about 2:30 a.m. outside the View Ultralounge & Nightclub on Prospect Avenue.
Givens, a party promoter and friend of Cavs superstar LeBron James, said Edwards is jealous of James' success and that led to the attack.
Following the incident, James called the incident "childish."
Edwards faces a sentence of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, if convicted.
