New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was arrested after he jumped on the hood of someone’s car in Beverly Hills Saturday night, police said.
Edelman damaged the car and was booked on suspicion of vandalism at about 9 p.m. in the 200 block of Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills Police Department Lt. Elisabeth Albanese told KTLA in an email.
He was later released on a citation and is scheduled to appear in court on April 13, according to Albanese.
The alleged vandalism took place after a lockdown was lifted in the area following a robbery.
Several businesses, as well as the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel, had been on lockdown for hours while officers searched for a robbery suspect who allegedly fired a gun along the 300 block of Canon Drive at about 5:30 p.m. The suspect was ultimately found and detained about three hours later.
The Patriots could not be reached for comment Sunday morning.
Edelman made huge plays during the Patriots’ historic comeback against Atlanta in the Super Bowl following the 2016 season, which New England won 34-28. He won Super Bowl MVP honors in New England’s 20-17 victory last season against the Rams.
The wide receiver led the Patriots during the 2019 regular season with 100 receptions, 1,117 yards and six touchdowns. But nagging injuries took a toll. He was mostly a non-factor in New England’s 20-13 wild-card upset loss to the Tennessee Titans.
