According to TMZ, New England Patriots super-star Julian Edelman was arrested in Beverly Hills Saturday after he allegedly jumped onto a Mercedes, causing damage to the car. 

Although Edelman is reportedly in need of knee surgery,  at around 9:00 p.m. a witness flagged down an LAPD officer and described the incident. The police caught up with him, and he was arrested and cited for misdemeanor vandalism. He was later released with friends. 

Police told TMZ the 33-year-old was having dinner Cantina FRIDA, along with Paul Pierce and Danny Amendola, and it was obvious he'd been drinking. 

The decision to file charges is made by the district attorney. 

The Patriots did not make it to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs this year. The team lost to the Tennessee Titans, which then beat the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night.
