Braylon Edwards' latest run-in with John Law

It hasn't been the best offseason for Braylon Edwards. Even though he recently managed to avoid jail time, he's been unable to find gainful employment from an NFL team (and awkwardly tweeted about the Jets not wanting him).

And now he's reportedly had another "incident," this time in a Birmingham, Alabama club. According to My Fox Detroit (via PFT.com) Edwards was allegedly at a bar on Sunday and two of his "entourage" were arrested for "roughing up some employees" late at night.

Robin Murdoch of the station also reports that Edwards' buddies got into an argument with employees that "eventually spilled into the kitchen" and that one worker was "sliced with a knife requiring 14 stitches." Murdoch also notes that "another was attacked with a fork."

Making matters (allegedly) worse is the fact that Edwards (allegedly) tweeted two statements -- "Damn. Get ya knuckles ready" and "Don't fight if. You don't know how" -- around the time of the incident.

Those tweets are no longer present on his timeline, but there is an odd message that Edwards left up on Twitter late on Monday night.

"Yo...Lost my phone last night someone sent tweets," Edwards tweeted. "Deleted them and changed my password. Sorry for the mishap hopefully never happens again!"

Read: he's claiming his Twitter account was hacked. (He also added "Friends & Fam if you need me DM or hit @NickBeam up he can reach me.") Of course, that's the oldest trick in the book, but it's not really possible to pinpoint anything on Braylon here, especially since the station reporting the news says he wasn't involved in the fight.

But it's still a "where there's smoke" matter, and it's hard to imagine anyone will be knocking down his door given the latest incident.

I could not agree more. All these idiots that act like this and have run ins with the law should be kicked from the league.

I love twitter.  It alows these idiots to show their true colors.  This guy will be in jail or dead 5 years out of the league.  What a douche!

He keeps this up and the only uniform he will be wearing is prison fatigues.

If B.E keeps this behavior up the Jets might be able to scoop him back up for league min.   Imagine this guy with security,  10-15 m in the bank, hed be a disaster.  Holmes may have celebrated by downing a bottle of crystal in his shorts playing his xbox but no one got stabbed.
