    2. The paragraph you used came from a VikingUpdate article & Scout.com. Only links to their stories can be posted, nothing else other than the title, date & author/source info.

    3. This thread is about Ronyell Whitaker, not Cedric Griffin. There is already another thread that discusses his arrest.

    The warrant stemmed from Whitaker being pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving by the State Patrol last September in Eden Prairie. Whitaker passed the field sobriety test but was issued a citation for reckless driving. Whitaker's attorney, Joe Tamburino, appeared in court on the player's behalf and the ticket was paid.

    The matter, however, did not show up as being resolved when police observed Whitaker's vehicle parked illegally at 400 3rd Ave. North at 2:40 this morning. Whitaker's agent, Brian Levy, said Whitaker had been at a club and that the valet service actually parked the car.

    When the police ran Whitaker's license through the system the warrant for his arrest mistakenly came up. Whitaker was released from police custody at 5:28 a.m. and hours later Tamburino's office contacted the clerk at the Ridgedale courthouse in Minnesota.

    "I have the receipt that we paid the ticket," Tamburino said. "They apologized and said they didn't know why it was marked as a non-appearance by Ronyell. It's a total mistake."

    I don't know why you guys were wanting to cut him even after it was reported as a mistake.

    It doesn't appear the "wreckless driving after midnight" part was a mistake.

    Only the 'non-appearance' was deemed to be a mistake.

    He shouldn't be driving wrecklessly after midnight.
    That's a bit more problematic than a few parking tickets.

    [size=13pt]Whitaker gets apology over arrest[/size]

    By Judd Zulgad, Star Tribune

    The attorney for Vikings cornerback Ronyell Whitaker received an apology Thursday after his client was mistakenly arrested in downtown Minneapolis on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. "It's a total mistake," attorney Joe Tamburino said.

    Whitaker was released from police custody at 5:28 a.m., and hours later, Tamburino's office contacted the clerk at the Ridgedale courthouse in Minnetonka. "I have the receipt that we paid the ticket," Tamburino said. "They apologized and said they didn't know why it was marked as a nonappearance by Ronyell."

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Staff and news service reports

    "It was cleared up by 8:30 or 9," he said. "They said yep, it's a mistake. We're sorry. The case is closed."

    Tamburino said he still has the receipt for the paid fine and that Whitaker wasn't upset by the mix-up.

    "He knew it was a mistake," Tamburino said. "And he's getting his $50 bail returned."

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    WHITAKER ARREST A "TOTAL MISTAKE"

    The lawyer for Vikings cornerback Roynell Whitaker says that the arrest of his client was a "total mistake," and that the matter has been dropped.

    Apparently, Whitaker was stopped in September 2006 for suspicion of DUI and reckless driving.
    He passed a field sobriety test, and later paid a fine for reckless driving.

    But when police spotted his car parked illegally on Thursday morning, the charges showed up as unresolved.
    And so he was arrested.
    Whitaker's agent, Brian Levy, claims that a valet service had parked the car in the illegal space.

    As a result of this news, we are being lobbied by most of the free world's Vikings fans to drop the six Turd Watch points that were applied upon learning of the Whitaker arrest.
    In lieu of responding to more than 100 e-mails on this point, here's our reply:

    Was he arrested?

    The primary problem that we're trying to address with this feature is the phenomenon of player arrests.
    Whitaker was arrested.
    If he doesn't like it, he should take it up with the folks who arrested him.

    False Alarm - Whitaker not at fault

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm
    AFTER FURTHER REVIEW . . . .

    We've decided to clear out the six Turd Points that were applied to Vikings cornerback Ronyell Whitaker as a result of his mistaken arrest on Thursday.

    Our decision is unrelated to the 264 e-mails we received on the topic.
    (We didn't realize the Vikings had so many fans.)
    And we say this specifically because we don't want to get 264 e-mails whenever there is disagreement regarding one of our Turd Watch rulings.

    With that said, we will not be re-setting the "days without an arrest counter" to April 15.
    Whitaker was arrested, even though it wasn't his fault.


    Besides, we're still not sure what will happen if that meter ever hits double digits.
    So "01" looks a lot better to us than "05."

    But, hey, the weekend is here.
    It'll be back to "00" by Monday.
