The backup wideout and special teamer has been charged with indecent assault, according to the Boston Globe.
The 25-year-old Edelman is due in Boston Municipal Court on Tuesday, where he is to be arraigned on charges of indecent assault and battery, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.
Police were called to the Storyville nightclub on Exeter Street in the Back Bay around 1:30 a.m. [Tuesday] after Edelman allegedly reached underneath the woman’s costume and grabbed her below the waist. A man with the woman, “saw the victim’s face change into an expression of shock” when Edelman apparently groped her, police said in the report.
That man reportedly “threatened to beat [Edelman] up” before both he, Edelman and the woman were ejected from the bar. Edelman denied groping the woman, police said, but when the man and woman positively identified him, he was charged with indecent assault and battery but later posted bail and was released by police.

Got to make the papers some how right? Edelman hasn’t exactly become the Wes Welker prodigy that everyone hoped he would become. Instead, he is probably using the “Wes Welker prodigy” line in bars and nightclubs, and when that fails he goes for his Plan B. And that Plan B is……groping. It’s a risky move and he has probably executed Plan B before but hasn’t got caught. Or, he has got caught but the victim he grabbed probably didn’t have a boy friend standing 8 inches away.
So now the Pats are accumulated some serious women assault-ers. Haynesworth now Edelman, plus a horrendous defense to go with it? If Belichick isn’t busy enough.
