Braylon Edwards pleads no contest, gets probation

Jets WR Braylon Edwards pleaded no contest today in Cleveland Municipal Court to aggravated disorderly conduct and was placed on probation.

Edwards punched Edward Givens in the face about 2:30 a.m. Oct. 5 outside the View Ultralounge & Nightclub on Prospect Avenue in Cleveland. The one-time Pro Bowl receiver was traded to the New York Jets just days after the incident.
Cleveland Municipal Judge Michelle Earley gave Edwards a suspended 180-day jail sentence and fined him $1,000.

Edwards must also stay active in his Advanced 100 Scholarship program as service to the community. His probation will be inactive, meaning he will not have to report to a probation officer.

It was unclear today if the NFL would punish Edwards for the incident under its beefed-up code of conduct. The Jets play San Diego Sunday.
