Julian Edelman will not be prosecuted for jumping on hood of person’s car
Julian Edelman found his name in the headlines for an embarrassing reason a week after the New England Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs last season, but the star wide receiver is not going to be prosecuted for his actions.
Edelman was arrested in Beverly Hills, Calif., back in January after he inexplicably jumped on the hood of a person’s parked Mercedes. Police were in the area at the time working a robbery, and someone flagged them down to report what Edelman had done. The 33-year-old was cited for misdemeanor vandalism and released.
As many expected, Edelman was able to settle the issue by writing a check. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office told TMZ this week that the owner of the vehicle said “has been fully compensated for the repair costs” and does not wish to see Edelman prosecuted. As a result, officials have scrapped the case.
Police say Edelman “slid across the hood” of the Mercedes and was intoxicated at the time. Tom Brady took a shot at his former teammate over the incident, and fortunately for Edelman it ended up costing him nothing but some money.
