Did Braylon Dougie For the Cops?
Perhaps I’m enjoying the news of Braylon Edwards’ arrest for a DUI — twice the legal limit, apparently — a little too much, but then again, having one occasional good game doesn’t mean you should act a fool with your boys, either. And then try and drive. Actually, act a fool all you want, just don’t get behind the wheel of a car if it involves alcohol.
What, does the Apple not have taxis or personal driver services? I know New York City is a small town with not a lot to offer residents in the way of public transportation (wink), but surely Edwards could’ve found somebody willing to drive his Dougie-ing ass around.
Oddly enough, Edwards wasn’t yanked for suspicion of driving under the influence. No, he was pulled over for the tint on his windows being darker than the legal limit. Yes, rules are rules, but surely, NYC cops have more to do than watch for overly-tinted vehicles. Of course, had Edwards not been drinking, the too-dark window tint stop wouldn’t have been news. Too bad for him he didn’t plan ahead or, worse yet, simply didn’t care that he was too drunk to drive.
As for the Jets, they released a statement concerning Edwards’
brilliance legal woes (self-inflicted):
“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.
“We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures.”
For the life of me, I can’t help but wonder if Braylon got out of his car and started doing the Dougie for the arresting officers. That’s about the only thing this story’s lacking.
