Julian Edelman has had a rough past week or so, and we aren’t just talking about the New England Patriots’ disappointing playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans. Now, the star receiver can also add an arrest to his list of problems.

Edelman was arrested in Beverly Hills, California, on Saturday night after he allegedly jumped on the hood of a person’s Mercedes, according to TMZ. Police were in the area working a robbery, and someone flagged them down to report what Edelman had done. The 33-year-old was cited for misdemeanor vandalism and released.

It’s unclear why Edelman decided to hop on the hood of someone’s car, but TMZ reports that police suspected he had been drinking. The Los Angeles County District Attorney will now decide whether or not to proceed with charges, though it seems like the type of case Edelman could easily settle by writing a check to the owner of the vehicle.

Edelman had one awesome play during New England’s loss to the Titans, but he also had a key dropped pass that killed a drive. He battled injuries throughout the season and is expected to have surgeries on both his shoulder and knee this offseason. He also has some legal trouble to sort out.
