Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson has filed a petition in Hennepin County District Court challenging the revocation of his driver’s license because of a DWI arrest in Eden Prairie a week ago, the third recent off-field incident involving a Minnesota Viking.
Anthony Ray “AJ” Jefferson Jr. was charged Wednesday with felony domestic assault for allegedly attacking his girlfriend Monday at their Eden Prairie home. The Vikings released him shortly after his arrest.
And on Nov. 9, another Viking, wide receiver Jerome Simpson, was arrested on drunken-driving charges.
These three charges have all came in the last week, and one person is not happy…..
Vikings general manager Rick Spielman called the three incident “unacceptable and disappointing, adding that the team has a “comprehensive approach” to player development and will “take a methodical look” at how to prevent problems.
Well Mr. Spielman, If you were putting a better product on the field, maybe your players wouldn’t be out partying late, getting drunk trying to forget about their loss last week. Just saying?
