Jets Wide Receiver

Busted for DWI

New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for drunk driving early this AM -- and, according to cops, he had twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

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).

What a dumbass... they just won a great game on Sunday and will hopefully have a great season. He gave all that up by being stupid. Dude makes a ton, couldn't he just hire a car service to drive him home?!?!? SMH

(UPDATE 9:07 a.m.): Well, this is weird. Edwards - or somebody who works for Edwards' official Twitter page - tweeted an update about 9 a.m. today. "GoodMorning World...Winning is the goal, perfection is the aspiration, & dedication is the key to unlock the door #LetsWork "

To be fair, there has been a nasty bug out there on Twitter today. Usually, though, viruses aren't so ... so inspirational.

I hate people who comment who cares, if you didn't you wouldn't read the article and take the time to post, there are people that care, whether they be jets fans or fans of Edwards or people who would like to see him suspended from the Jets. So EZPZ, you are a closet case person who actually does care.

He was in a car with his boyfriend...the dude is GAY! That will be the next TMZ story about this clown! You heard it here first! That's why several teams weren't interested in a trade for him. He is a homo! They don't want a gay in the locker room!
