    Re: Vikings' Everson Griffen arrested

    I think I'd like to hear more details of this story before I write the kid off.....but that's just because I know these preliminary news stories only go with the most basic of information, which is the UN-official police report. "Assault" could have been as simple as batting the police officer's hand away. What kind of "questioning" was he being given? We've all see way too many cases of the taser being used when not necessary.

    Hopefully, we didn't waste a draft pick on a thug head-case...but at the end of the day, this is NOT the kind of news we, as fans, NOR the Vikings organization need to be getting after the season we just had.

    *sigh*

    And that is why he fell to us in the 4th round. Sad he had a lot of promise, assaulting a police officer; STUPID.

    The incident took place during a routine traffic stop, Rayner said. Officers asked Griffen for his license, which turned out not to be valid, according to sources familiar with the investigation. Griffen then told them "he did not want to go back to jail" and sprinted away from the officers, who caught up with him after a short distance.

    When one of the officers tried to subdue Griffen, he allegedly grabbed the officer in the groin area, the source said. Moments later, officers used a Taser to subdue him,

    Okay, that makes it a little bit funny. Too bad he didn't get away, they would've never found him. It's not like they know where he works.

    Clear to see why he's on special teams... with such speed then we won't see him fielding punts or kicks then :-)
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
