Ravens’ Gus Edwards sues strip club over alleged armed robbery
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards says he was robbed at gunpoint outside a strip club in Los Angeles a few months ago, and he says the establishment was responsible for the incident.
Edwards recently filed a lawsuit against Crazy Girls in L.A. In the suit, which was obtained by TMZ, Edwards says he and his friend Loomis Zayzay were robbed outside the club on Dec. 11 by five masked men who all had guns. The men allegedly stole Edwards’ $50,000 custom necklace and $25,000 custom watch as well as Zayzay’s $60,000 watch.
Edwards says he and Zayzay paid $60 each to valet their cars and then $800 to sit in a private area inside the club. They left after about an hour because some of the club’s employees began fighting. The robbery took place when they went to retrieve their cars from the valet.
The lawsuit states that video evidence shows Crazy Girls security guards made no attempt to intervene in the robbery. Edwards says he received a message on Instagram a week later from a person named “Johnny Blaze” who told him he had been “set up by the valet.” The person who contacted Edwards said the jewelry had been taken to a local jewelry store after it was stolen. Edwards was able to confirm that information with the jeweler.
Edwards and Zayzay are suing Crazy Girls and their valet service for $800,000 in damages.
Edwards did not play at all in 2021, as he was one of several key Ravens players who suffered injuries prior to the season. He has been with Baltimore since they signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2018.
