Ex-NFL Star Braylon Edwards

VIDEO OF NIGHTCLUB ATTACK

Grabs Ankles, Flips Photog On Face

TMZ has obtained video proving Braylon Edwards didn't just attack a man outside of a Detroit nightclub this weekend ... he delivered one of the biggest CHEAP SHOTS we've ever seen.

The video begins with the 6'3", 218-pound unemployed wide receiver chewing out a photog who allegedly shot footage of Braylon pushing someone else around outside the nightclub.

After Braylon screams at the guy, the photog starts to walk away ... but Braylon chased after him, and while the photog had his back turned, Braylon reached down and ripped his ankles out from under him ... sending the photog flying face first into the pavement.

The photog eventually got up and headed to a nearby police station, where he filed a battery report against the 30-year-old.

As for the extent of his injuries, we're told the photog denied medical attention, claiming he only suffered minor injuries.

After the incident, Braylon adamantly denied ANY WRONGDOING ... tweeting, "The reports are blasphemy. Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn't harmed at all."

Braylon's rep initially told TMZ ... the photog concocted the story in a shameless attempt to "take Braylon's money."

The photog tells TMZ ... he's pissed about the situation and plans to pursue his case all the way through.

The world is disgusting    

This is what happens when society treats, pro-sports players, singers, actors and any famous duche like gods. They feel they can do anything they want and treat people anyway they please, without consequences becasue they have money and the judicial system seems to be star-stuck. Im over it. Im over all these rich fu**s getting away with murder just because they are rich. #ROBTHERICH

NFL do the right thing and kick this man out of the NFL. Send a lesson to all players, assaults like this are not permitted in our society. So tried of these sports figures acting like thugs and getting away with it.

"The reports are blasphemy." So believe me when I tell you I didn't do it. Why would you believe what your eyes can see on the tape when I'm standing here telling you it's a lie?

What an idiot.

Nice, valuable piece of video. Now Braylon's attorney can see that not only is his client a LIAR but he's a coward and a bully who should be made to pay dearly for that assault.

The way people are commenting I was under the impression he beat the guy to a pulp. I didn't see a scratch on the guy in the second video. Yes Braylon makes bad choices, this is why he is not on an NFL roster right now and has trouble sticking on one when he does get a chance. People put themselves in bad situations. I bet anyone on this board wouldn't be so fond of those situations being taped by random strangers.

Looks like a garden variety drunken bar spat to me. The guy wasn't hurt and he got the footage and sold it to TMZ and will probably get a couple more dollars from Braylon. No big deal in this day and age.

Does he consider himself as something sacred or is he so ignorant that he doesn't know the English language? I say it's the second.
