Ex-NFL star Braylon Edwards' attack victim has now filed a formal complaint against the Detroit Police Department, claiming its officers blew him off while Edwards was going after him -- and the 911 operator was even less helpful.
According to Ken Bryant's complaint, roughly 4 police officers stood by and did nothing while Edwards chased him down outside a nightclub last month, grabbed him by the ankles, and flipped him onto his face.
As we reported, Edwards went nuclear because Bryant recorded cell phone video of the NFL player shoving someone outside the club ... and then refused to delete it. TMZ Sports posted video of Edwards attacking Bryant, and it's pretty intense.
After the incident, Bryant says he called 911 because Edwards and his goons were refusing to let him leave the premises -- and the operator redirected his call to the Telephone Crime Reporting Unit ... which turned out to be useless.
As a result, Bryant tells TMZ Sports, he didn't get the help he desperately needed. After filing the complaint, Bryant says he was contacted once by the Board of Police Commissioners, but his calls back have gone unreturned.
He doesn't have a lawyer yet, but Bryant says he'll be taking legal action asap. Calls to the Detroit PD for comment weren't returned.
