Antavian Edison: 'I have never owned a gun'

Antavian Edison is speaking out on Twitter after being arrested Sunday in Florida and charged with carrying a concealed weapon, a felony.

"I have never owned a Gun or found a need to," Edison posted at about 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday. "I don't have enemies. Just a loving family who put God first!"

Edison, Purdue's leading receiver, was arrested at 1:57 a.m. Sunday morning and released on $1,500 bond later that morning, according to the Fort Myers News-Press.

Edison was pulled over after running a stop sign near midnight on Sunday, according to the paper. After acquiring probable cause to search the car, officers found a loaded gun lying between the driver and front passenger, the paper said. There also was a bag of ammunition under the rear bench seat, according to the paper.

Edison and his uncle Devon Edison, a convicted felon in Florida, were arrested and charged.

But Antavian Edison has been outspoken on Twitter since the incident.

He posted, "My next mugshot while be with the Dean and my Degree!!:)"

He also posted, "When you look into my eyes, you won't see a thug. You will see an educated black man, motivated for success!"
