Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

Browns coach Eric Mangini, in the wake of receiver Braylon Edwards allegedly punching a friend of LeBron James on Monday morning -- and Edwards' teammates getting involved -- made it clear misconduct will not be tolerated.
Edwards reportedly punched Edward Givens at 2:30 a.m. at the View Ultra-Lounge & Nightclub, 618 Prospect Ave., in Cleveland, and some of the receiver's teammates also reportedly threw punches to defend themselves.
"Personal conduct is very important to me," said Mangini. "It's important to us, and to the players. It's important today, it's important tomorrow. I always want our players to put themselves in the most positive positions."
He said he talked to Edwards about the incident on Monday and indicated Edwards was remorseful.
Given that Mangini fines players $1,701 for not paying their hotel incidentals and parking in other people's spots to help make them accountable, it's likely he'll fine Edwards and possibly other Browns if they were involved in the altercation. Edwards also faces possible discipline from the NFL under terms of its personal conduct policy.
