The 27-year-old was pulled over in his Range Rover in NY at 5:15AM for having tinted windows -- but police smelled alcohol. Edwards blew a .16.

He's currently in custody.

NY Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum says "We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning ... We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures." Tannenbaum also said Edwards is aware the Jets provide a car service for all their players.

Edwards was at a charity event Monday night hosted by his teammate Jerrico Cotchery. Several other Jets players were also there.

UPDATE 8:45AM PDT: Edwards is still in custody, awaiting arraignment. FOX5 in NY obtained his mug shot (above).
