Former NFL star receiver Braylon Edwards was at a YMCA facility in Farmington Hills, Michigan, when he heard some commotion inside the locker room.

It sounded like an argument over the music, but it was much more than that.

“I walk into the locker room after work, and basically, I hear about four rows behind me arguing about music and how it was being played too loud,” he told Local 4 WDIV Detroit. “So I’m not paying attention, and I was just minding my business.

“The noise escalates, and then you can hear some pushing and shoving, so you know what fighting sounds like. But once I hear a thud, that’s when I got up and turned around.”

“I see the guy — for what I was thinking — was reaching for a phone underneath the victim, grabs the back of the victim’s head by the hair, and he was about to slam it down on the counter. I grabbed him, subdued him,” Edwards said.

The Cleveland Browns selected him in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. Edwards spent time with the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
