Is anyone else besides Vikings Vixen concerned about the Minnesota Vikings Football players’ regular encounters with our local law enforcement? Last week, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Ronyell Whitaker was arrested for driving while intoxicated. A DWI for crying out loud! According to the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, Ronyell Whitaker, 28, was also cited for careless driving. He was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court on May 2nd.
Whitaker is now the seventh Viking to be arrested in the past year! I should start my own “Vikings Crime” blog! Earlier this week, cornerback Cedric Griffin was arrested in downtown Minneapolis and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He was accused of engaging in an altercation with the staff of a nightclub over his alleged violation of their dress code. How crazy is that? He caused a fist fight over his clothes!
I think coach Brad Childress may need to have a little pre-camp meeting with the Vikings players to explain how important it is to keep their noses clean and stay out of trouble. Instead of hanging out at the clubs getting drunk and getting into fights, let’s get the players into a 24 hour gym where they can lift weights and work on their stamina and get ready to play in the National Football League.
