    Vikings' Taylor calls arrest 'misunderstanding'Associated Press


    MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Travis Taylor was arrested early Monday outside a downtown Minneapolis nightclub, hours after the team's season-ending 41-21 loss to St. Louis, police said.

    Taylor, 27, had refused an officer's request that he get into a waiting limousine-bus as police tried to disperse a large, unruly crowd so an ambulance could get through around 2:30 a.m., police spokesman Lt. Amelia Huffman said.



    Taylor was not allowing the bus to leave and began pushing the officer as the officer tried to separate him from the bus, Huffman said. The officer eventually used a Taser to subdue Taylor, she said.



    Taylor was booked into the Hennepin County Jail on allegations of fifth-degree assault, disorderly conduct and interfering with pedestrian or vehicular traffic, all misdemeanors. He posted $50 bail and was released around 4:40 a.m.



    Taylor, who will be a free agent this spring, started all 16 games and led the Vikings with 57 receptions for 651 yards.



    "It was just a misunderstanding and an unfortunate situation," Taylor said Monday after a season-ending team meeting. "I was just in a limo and got pulled out. We'll discuss that later and we'll deal with the situation."



    Though players have better avoided trouble this season than in the past, there have been a few. Receiver Koren Robinson was charged with drunken and reckless driving during training camp, and safety Dwight Smith was cited for indecent conduct outside a downtown nightclub a couple of weeks later. In December, defensive backs coach Joe Woods was charged with two counts of drunken driving.

    Happy New Year TT! I bet that taser was a bit of a buzz kill though.

    And so it begins.

    I think this may be an omen of things to come this offseason. If BC follows this horsedoo season with an offseason fiasco, well...it would not bode well for Sir 'Stache.

    We can hope that this will be the worst of it. An unrestricted FA with minimal interest in stayig here gets in trouble and will most likely be the focus of the Wrath o' Chilli.

    But for some reason I don't buy that. After a year as disapointing as 6 was, I think 7 runs the risk of being the aftermath...

    Then again, if I were wrong, it certainly wouldn't be the first time.

    if this spells the end for him, that means our leader in meceiving tds (mrob) and our leader in receiving yards are gone. might not be that big of a deal. Its not like either had big #s in either category.
    WE CAN BUILD ON THIS!!!

    In AP I trust
