Antavian Edison faces weapons count
According to the Fort Meyers News-Press, Edison was arrested at 1:57 a.m. Sunday in Fort Myers and released later that morning on $1,500 bond.
The newspaper said cops found a loaded .38 caliber revolver lying between the driver and front passenger seats as well as 17 rounds of .38 special ammunition under the rear bench seat.
Purdue is not commenting on Edison's status as it gathers more details about the situation.
Edison, a two-year starter, led Purdue with 584 receiving yards and ranked second on the team with 44 receptions in 2011. He had 30 rushes for 124 yards and accounted for five total touchdowns (three receiving, two rushing).
