TMZ has obtained video proving Braylon Edwards didn’t just attack a man outside of a Detroit nightclub this weekend … he delivered one of the biggest CHEAP SHOTS we’ve ever seen.
The video begins with the 6’3″, 218-pound unemployed wide receiver chewing out a photog who allegedly shot footage of Braylon pushing someone else around outside the nightclub.
After Braylon screams at the guy, the photog starts to walk away … but Braylon chased after him, and while the photog had his back turned, Braylon reached down and ripped his ankles out from under him … sending the photog flying face first into the pavement.
The photog eventually got up and headed to a nearby police station, where he filed a battery report against the 30-year-old.
As for the extent of his injuries, we’re told the photog denied medical attention, claiming he only suffered minor injuries.
After the incident, Braylon adamantly denied ANY WRONGDOING … tweeting, “The reports are blasphemy. Was joking with friends and a guy was filming us. I asked him to delete it, he said no. He wasn’t harmed at all.”
Braylon’s rep initially told TMZ … the photog concocted the story in a shameless attempt to “take Braylon’s money.”
The photog tells TMZ … he’s pissed about the situation and plans to pursue his case all the way through.
