Braylon Edwards was not alone in his car when he was pulled over Tuesday morning in Manhattan and later arrested for driving while intoxicated.
Several reports have indicated that fellow Jets D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Vernon Gholston were also in Edwards' Range Rover at 4:47 a.m. Tuesday when officers pulled the car over. The officers detected a strong smell of alcohol and noticed that Edwards had bloodshot eyes, according to police reports.
Edwards then underwent the breathalyzer exam, blowing a .16 reading (twice the legal limit), and was arrested.
Edwards was released on his own recognizance Tuesday afternoon without bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 9.
The Red Sox and Orioles play the second of a three-game set at Fenway on Tuesday night. The Sox lost the opener Monday, 4-2, and have now dropped three of their last four contests. At 83-67 on the season, they stand eight games behind the Yankees in the AL East and 6.5 games behind Tampa Bay in the wild card race.
Clay Buchholz (16-7, 2.48 ERA) takes the hill for the Sox. Buchholz's lone shutout of the 2010 season came against the Orioles on June 4. That is his only start vs. Baltimore this season. Buchholz is opposed by Brad Bergesen (7-10, 5.03).

A league source has confirmed to WEEI.com that Patriots running back Kevin Faulk has a torn ACL in his right knee.
Faulk injured the knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Jets. He stayed on the ground for a few minutes after the injury but was able to walk off the field. He did not speak to the media after the game, but was quite emotional in the locker room, hugging several players and a member of the training staff before leaving the Meadowlands.
A veteran of all three Super Bowl winners with the Patriots, Faulk is the longest-tenured member of the team and an offensive captain.
The Boston Globe was first to report the story.

One day after the Bruins held goaltender Tim Thomas out of the team’s black/white scrimmage, the 2008-09 Vezina winner was once again missing when Group A took the ice for Tuesday’s practice.
Thomas is recovering from offseason hip surgery and participated in some of the team’s captain’s practices earlier in the month in an effort to be 100 percent by the time the Bruins begin their season next month in Prague. Even so, the team sees no use in rushing the 36-year-old back.
“Something that we’ve said right from the get-go, [is that] we’d monitor [him],” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Monday. “He’s had that surgery and we have to take our time to bring him [back].”
Julien added Monday that although Thomas “is actually ahead of schedule," the team’s plan is to “bring him along slowly.”
Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for driving drunk early Tuesday morning in New York's West Side, reportedly possessing double the legal limit of alcohol. The wideout blew a 0.16 on a Breathalyzer test, double the state's legal limit of 0.08.
The report states the 27-year-old was arrested at 5:15 a.m. after police pulled him over for having overly-tinted windows on his Range Rover.
Edwards, who did have a passenger in the car with him, was still in police custody as of early Tuesday morning and was scheduled to be arraigned later in the day. Edwards had previously run into trouble with the law when he was arrested in Cleveland for assault, ultimately pleading no contest.
The Jets issued a statement saying: "We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning. The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this...
