Patriots receiver Edelman arrested on assault charge

BOSTON — New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman’s agent says his client will "vigorously" fight a charge that he groped a woman during a Halloween party at a Boston nightclub.

At a brief court hearing Tuesday, a not guilty plea was entered for Edelman to a charge of indecent assault and battery.

The Patriots later released a statement from agent Don Yee, who said the charge "will be fought vigorously within the court system, instead of a rush to judgment elsewhere."

Edelman and his lawyer left court without speaking to reporters.

According to an application for the criminal complaint, police were called about 1:30 a.m. to the club, where a woman said the 25-year-old Edelman had reached under her costume and grabbed her crotch. Edelman denied to police that he groped the woman, but was arrested.
