    I was thinking the samething. If he would have stopped they would have called the Vikings and let him go. But speeding around town was stuipid. Plus he actually got away once. He should have shut the lights off parked the car and walked. Called a cab and waitied.


    They would have called the Vikings after they incarcerated him. They don't let you walk ever when you drive 104 and smell of booze. If they let him go and he killed someone (which is a distinct possibility based on his driving) what do you think would have happened to that cop when it was revealed he just let him go? He was a raving lunitic and needed to be stopped.

    Not a chance.
    That would be giving KoRo special treatment based on his status as a pro athlete.
    Not only is that unethical, but it is also illegal.
    And, as pointed out by Vikes, the police officer and the department would then be liable for any damage he did after that.

    Plus, he didn't ever really get away.
    They had the make, model, color, and most likely the license plate of the car.
    That's all they needed.

    Robinson got ticket last week
    Star/Trib

    Vikings receiver Koren Robinson's troubles with law enforcement actually began last week. A spokesperson at the Mankato police department said Robinson received a ticket for not having a valid Minnesota driver's license when he was pulled over Aug. 10 at Riverfront and Stoltzman Road near the Minnesota State, Mankato campus where the Vikings hold training camp. Robinson was pulled over at midnight.

    According to the spokesperson, Robinson was pulled over after a complaint was called into the Mankato police department about his driving.

    Why did he speed home. I guess he was drunk KRob is done in Minny.

    Vikings | K. Robinson could get suspended before conviction
    Thu, 17 Aug 2006 15:58:23 -0700

    Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports Minnesota Vikings WR Koren Robinson still faces a one-year suspension from the NFL, even if he is not convicted. A person familiar with how the process works said if a player violates the terms of his treatment plan, he is subject to suspension prior to conviction in court. The NFLPA will argue the case and try to stall Robinson's suspension for as long as possible. The NFL has usually been patient with these types of situations.

    Koren Robinson's biggest problem isn't just with the NFL, a league that could suspend him for a year, or the Vikings, the team that could cut him. Robinson's biggest problem could be his violation of probation from the DUI incident he settled in the Seattle area last September. Under terms of the resolution, Robinson served one day in jail and had 364 days suspended as long as he didn't violate the probation. His charges in Minnesota of driving under the influence Tuesday night will force his attorneys to scramble in both states, Minnesota and Washington. The Vikings gave him a contract that pays him $3 million this year, but $2.3 million is tied up in a roster bonus. While the Vikings like Robinson, this incident puts his job and his career in jeopardy.

    VIKINGS DONE WITH K-ROB?

    There's strong chatter in league circles that the Minnesota Vikings plan to cut the cord on receiver Koren Robinson, who was arrested last week following a high-speed police chase and charged with felony fleeing, driving under the influence, and reckless driving.

    The Vikings have excused Robinson in the wake of the charges, and he did not make the trip with the team to Pittsburgh for Saturday night's preseason game against the Steelers.
    The thinking, as one league source explained, is that the Vikings plan to part ways with Robinson, but that they do not want to move quickly to cut him for fear of facing a grievance.

    Under the CBA, teams are not permitted to cut a player as a disciplinary measure.
    In 2004, the Cowboys abruptly dumped quarterback Quincy Carter after word broke that he would be suspended for violation of the substance abuse policy.
    Carter, who later signed with the Jets, filed a grievance against the Cowboys.
    As last check, the grievance was still pending.

    But from the cap-rich Vikings' perspective, the question of whether the team is ultimately required to pay his $600,000 salary for 2006 likely takes a back seat to the question of whether the post-Love Boat Vikings are going to look the other way when a guy pisses all over his second chance.

    There are reports that the three-year, $12.7 million contract Robinson signed in the offseason contains language voiding most if not all of the deal if he has further issues with alcohol.
    The contract, however, was signed after the NFL and the union hammered out the Term Sheet extending the Collective Bargaining Agreement -- and the Term Sheet contains language prohibiting individually negotiated forfeiture provisions for violations of the substance abuse policy and steroids policy.

    Regardless of these niceties, our guess is that if the Vikings decide to get rid of Robinson, they'll do it.
    Sure, they might wait until the other cuts are made before announcing Robinson's release in order to give them an argument against a grievance.
    But in the end there are bigger issues at play here, and the last thing the Vikings need is a return to the old attitude of looking the other way when players and coaches did things that 99.5 percent of the general population doesn't do.

    If/when the Vikings part ways with Robinson, it'll be interesting to see whether the Jaguars make a run at him.
    Jacksonville assistant head coach Mike Tice was instrumental in luring Robinson to Minnesota a year ago, and keeping him there after the Vikings released him before the start of the regular season in an effort to avoid triggering a full guarantee of his 2005 salary.
    Under the CBA, the base salary of a vested veteran becomes fully guaranteed if the player is on the roster for the first regular season game.


    Since the Jags opted not to sign an established pass-catcher to replace Jimmy Smith, who abruptly retired in the offseason, the move could make sense.
    The bigger question, however, is whether authorities in Washington will move quickly with attempts to put Robinson in jail for violation of probation imposed upon him in 2005 after a guilty plea to drunk driving.

    If that happens, the only team for which Robinson will be playing in 2006 wears red and black and squares off against prison guards.
