Patriots Receiver's Halloween Costume Made His Arrest Even More Embarrassing

Patriots Receiver Julian Edelman
Oh, the satisfaction Boston police must have felt when they arrested New England Patriot Julian Edelman in the wee hours of this morning. Not only is the 25-year-old pro athlete ... well, a 25-year-old pro athlete, which must mean he has a fairly high opinion of himself, Edelman also happened to be dressed up like a cop for Halloween when he was taken into custody at Storyville night club.

Busted, big shot! Who's a tough guy now?

It's okay to poke fun at Edelman's arrest, because if he really did what he's being accused of doing, then he's either a gross, creepy dude or a guy who turns into a gross, creepy dude when he's drunk (which is kind of the same thing).


Edelman is being charged with indecent assault and battery on a woman for allegedly "reaching under her costume and groping her below the waist." Eww. Apparently the woman's male companion was a little upset, and he got all up in Edelman's face on the dance floor (despite her attempts to calm him down. Well, can't say I blame the guy!).

That's when Storyville staff "removed" the man and woman from the club and police arrived to take Edelman downtown.

Edelman, don't forget, is dressed up like a Reno! 911-inspired cop at the time.

It's not often we get to use the word chagrin, but I can't think of a more applicable term in this case: Can you imagine Edelman's chagrin at being handcuffed and stuffed into a police car while wearing a police officer Halloween costume??

Edelman is reportedly out on bail now. And, who knows, maybe he didn't even do it.

Either way, I bet he wishes he wore his Patriots jersey as a costume instead.

Do you think Julian Edelman is guilty of groping a woman at a nightclub?
