NFL star Braylon Edwards has been named in a battery report — after a photog told cops the ex-49er grabbed him by the ankles outside a Detroit nightclub … and shook him upside down, our sources has learned.
A rep for the Detroit PD tells us … the guy who filed the report claims he took a photo of Braylon pushing someone outside a club in Downtown Detroit — and that”s when things turned ugly.
Edwards allegedly told the photog he needed to look at the pic — but when he refused … Braylon flipped him upside down Suge Knight style to the concrete.
The victim refused medical attention because he only had minor injuries … and luckily, he held onto the phone containing the photo.
A rep for Braylon tells our sources … the football player was NEVER physical with the photog — and the guy only filed a report to “take Braylon”s money.”
