DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Was he protesting too much?

Braylon Edwards, the former Michigan wide receiver and current NFL free agent, loudly complained when he was accused of attacking a man outside a Detroit nightclub over the weekend.

And then this came out: Celebrity watchdog site TMZ released a video Tuesday showing Edwards diving for a man’s ankles and throwing him against a Detroit police car. See the video HERE.

Before the video was released, Edwards loudly decried any wrongdoing, writing on Twitter, “The reports are blasphemy. Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn’t harmed at all.”

The victim filed a battery complaint and spoke in a second video where he said he saw Edwards roughing up some kids and intervened. He said Edwards grabbed him, and then insisted he delete his phone video.

The man refused.

Edwards played for Lloyd Carr from 2001-2004, memorably recording three touchdowns in the 2005 Rose Bowl.Ex-NFL Star Braylon Edwards — VIDEO OF NIGHTCLUB ATTACK … Grabs Ankles, Flips Photog On Face
