Another Embarrassment For The Vikes
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Suspended Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson
is facing misdemeanor charges of driving on a limited driver's license, possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle and having an open bottle in a motor vehicle.
Rick Hart, deputy police chief for the city of Bloomington, Minnesota, confirmed Thursday that Simpson was cited but not arrested July 7. Hart says no further information would be made public for now. The citation was issued shortly after midnight on a road less than a mile from the team's suburban headquarters in Eden Prairie.
Simpson is in the final week of his three-game suspension under the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He was arrested last year on suspicion of drunken driving.
Simpson has a Nov. 3 arraignment scheduled in Hennepin County court.
