A night after his team fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was arrested on a single count of indecent assault and battery, the Boston Globe reports.

Per the report, Edelman had just left a nightclub on Halloween when a woman told police that she was the victim of an indecent assault.

According to the Boston Herald, the 24-year-old allegedly groped a woman at a Halloween party shortly after 1:30 a.m.

He will be arraigned Tuesday.
