Braylon Edwards Accused of Assaulting Man Outside of Cleveland Nightclub

Browns WR Braylon Edwards has been accused of assaulting a 28-year-old Cleveland man, Edward Givens, early this morning outside of View Ultralounge & Nightclub.

No charges have been pressed, but Givens -- an events promoter for a company that holds Sunday night parties at View -- did go to the hospital for what he described as a black eye and cut. He also told Cleveland.com the following:

"After the club closed, I was outside greeting and saying goodbye to people. Braylon comes up and started saying things, degrading me. He said if it wasn't for LeBron or the Four Horsemen, I wouldn't have what I have, nor would I be able to get girls. Everyone knows Braylon has a problem with LeBron. So I had to speak up for myself. The conversation started to escalate. As some of his teammates started to pull him back, he punched me. I have a black eye and a cut. I'm not a violent guy.

"As long as I've known Braylon, I've allowed him and his friends to come into our events free of charge. Whatever jealousy he has with LeBron, he felt he needed to take it out on me."
