Julian Edelman Charged With Indecent Assault And Battery On Woman

Patriots WR Julian Edelman was allegedly involved in an incident at a nightclub on Tuesday morning that will result in him getting charged with indecent assault and battery on a woman.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will be arraigned on charges of indecent assault and battery on a woman after an alleged incident early Tuesday morning, according to a report in the Boston Globe. Edelman is due in court on Tuesday where he'll be arraigned.

There aren't many details but officers were called to a night club around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning to investigate an incident.

After speaking with the female victim, Edelman was arrested on a single count of indecent assault and battery, Driscoll said. Edelman was taken into custody but later posted bail and was released by police.

As SB Nation Boston points out, indecent assault is a serious accusation. It's defined as "any person who has indecent contact with another or takes indecent liberties with a person without his or her consent is guilty of indecent assault. It is a sex crime."

Patriots players are off today so the next media availability would come on Wednesday.
