Purdue receiver Antavian Edison got some good news today, as the felony weapons charge against him has been dropped.
The school announced the news in a release.
“We are pleased to know that Antavian’s name has been cleared of any wrongdoing,” Purdue head coach Danny Hope said. “Those of us who know Antavian always believed it was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Edison was arrested earlier this month in his hometown of Fort Meyers, Fla., and charged with suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, a felony. Police said they found a loaded .38 caliber revolver in the car carrying Eddison and his uncle. However, he was never suspended from the team.
Edison led Purdue with 584 receiving yards last season, reeling in 44 catches and three touchdowns in the process. Edison also ran 30 times for 135 yards and two touchdowns.
