UF’s Edwards charged with misdemeanor battery


GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida defensive back Brian Edwards has been released from the Alachua County Jail after being arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge.

Edwards was accused of grabbing his girlfriend of two years by her neck Monday as she attempted to leave their apartment, according to a Gainesville Police report. A witness intervened and called 911. The arresting officer said the woman had marks on her neck and a scratch on her shoulder.

Edwards, 20, refused to speak to officers after being read his Miranda rights, police said.

Edwards made his first court appearance Tuesday, pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance and ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim, according to court records.

A junior from Hollywood, Edwards has played in 18 games for the Gators. He has totaled seven tackles and four pass breakups.

Jones is the second Florida player to land in trouble in the past week. Two fellow students accused freshman quarterback Jalon Jones of sexual battery last month. The women withdrew their complaint, and no charges are expected to be filed. Jones has since left the program.
