Paris Saint-Germain teenager Odsonne Edouard, who is currently on-loan at Toulouse, has been placed in police custody after an incident involving an Airsoft gun, according to France 3, as per Get French Football News.
The 19-year-old has not enjoyed life in Ligue 1 this season, making just four starts for Toulouse, however, his life off the pitch may be about to get a whole lot worse.
Edouard is said to be linked to an incident involving an Airsoft pellet which struck a passer-by in the face. GFFN perfectly summed up the situation with this tweet.

The identity of the shooter has not yet been confirmed as Edouard, but police have found security footage which places the Frenchman in his car moments before the incident occurred on February 11.
Of course, the teenager's statement is far different from the one conjured up by French authorities, stating that he let someone else borrow his car on that day.
If this is the case, then surely the PSG man would be able to inform police of the perpetrator as he allowed them to use his vehicle.
If found guilty, Edouard is likely to receive some hefty punishment from the police which could take a huge toll on his potential career in the game.
Prison time would almost be a certainty and very few players have returned from behind bars and had a successful career.
Perhaps the only name that springs to mind is Watford's Troy Deeney who after serving time in prison for assaulting someone has gone on to have a very successful Premier League career.
