Next up to reset the “Days Without an Arrest” ticker to double zeroes? Purdue’s Antavian Edison.
According to the Fort Myers News-Press, the Boilermakers wide receiver, who went to high school in the city, was arrested very early Sunday morning and charged with carrying a concealed weapon. That charge is a felony.
The West Lafayette Journal & Courier reports that Edison’s younger brother was hit with the same charge, as well as a weapons charge for being a convicted felon in Florida in possession of a gun or ammo.
There were no details made available as to what lead to the arrest and charges. The school would only tell the Journal & Courier that the program is currently in fact-gathering mode and therefore has no comment.
Last season, Edison led the Boilermakers in receiving yards with 584; tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns with three; and finished second in receptions with 44.
