Patriots WR Julian Edelman Arrested Monday Night

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is flipped through the air on a tackle, against the Buffalo Bills in the third quarter of their NFL football game in Orchard Park, New York September 25, 2011.

New England Patriots WR/KR Julian Edelman was arrested early Tuesday morning after being charged with indecent assault and battery.

Incident allegedly happened at a Halloween Party at the Back Bay bar, Storyville, an upscale jazz club near the Prudential Center.  The 25-year old, according to the police reports, is accused of “reaching up between the woman’s party costume and grabbing her vagina.”

The victim and a male witness were originally removed from the bar and the witness threatened to beat Edelman up.  He was also removed and denied the allegations to Boston Police.

He was later arrested and charged and Tuesday morning pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance.
