Jerome Felton arrested for DWI

The Vikings legal issues continue as Jerome Felton was arrested early this morning on a second-degree DWI charge. Felton was arrested and refused to submit a chemical test making it a second-degree charge which is a gross misdemeanor. Felton was released Saturday after posting $12,000 bail. Since the beginning of 2011, at least six Vikings players have been arrested including three on DWI charges even though the NFL provides free car service to prevent these issues. The Vikings are beginning to look a lot like the Bengals of the past few years and starting to get a bad reputation because of it.


Rhett Bomar Arrested

The Minnesota Vikings’ QB Rhett Bomar was arrested on charges of a DWI.

Bomar, presumably the 4th quarterback on the Vikings depth chart, was acquired by the Vikings off the New York Giants practice squad in December of last season when they had a slew of underperforming QBs get hurt (Tarvaris Jackson and Brett Favre).  Bomar was booked at 5:15 early Sunday morning.  Bomar who looked promising coming out of Sam Houston State, hasn’t lived up to that potential.  The Vikings seem to be in a place where they may not be keeping him anyway, but this surely doesn’t help his chances.
