Vikings' Willie Offord arrested (2 Viewers)


Mod in training
Vikings safety Willie Offord was arrested and charged with drunken driving early Tuesday morning, according to a spokesman for the Minnesota State Patrol.

A state patrol officer stopped Offord at 2:20 a.m. on westbound Interstate Hwy. 394 in Golden Valley. Offord's blood alcohol content was not available Tuesday, but he was charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree drunken driving, which means it was less than .20.

Offord was booked into the Hennepin County Jail at 3:29 a.m. and released from custody at 5:52 a.m. He was assigned an April 26 appearance at Hennepin County Ridgedale Court.

The Vikings signed Offord, their special teams captain in 2005, to a two-year contract extension last month. He is rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered in a Week 3 over New Orleans last season, and was limited during a veteran minicamp earlier this month.

The Vikings believe he will be healthy when training camp begins, and Offord could compete with free-agent acquisition Tank Williams for the starting strong safety job.

Offord was not available for comment. The Vikings and Offord's agent, David Canter, both declined comment.

The guy was on his way to being the starting SS before injury last year. Now this.

When will these guys learn?

Note to Zygi: If you draft Jason Allen, I WILL buy an authentic Vikings jersey.
