Havner has been arrested for DUI, but not charged yet

Last night, a report emerged that Packers tight end Spencer Havner has been arrested for DUI.  His agents responded by strongly denying that Havner has been “charged criminally.”

As it turns out, both are right.

Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Havner has been arrested, and that the prosecutor will have to decide whether to pursue charges.’

Still, the statement from the agents now comes off as hair-splitting.  Havner is in hot water, and the last thing he needs is grandstanding.

    simply stunning. the guy actually had a good season too. contributed on a lot of good plays.

  2. Contra says: Mar 16, 2010 12:09 PM

    Carve another notch up for this aging relic of a team. Lets see how many more crimes their team members can achieve by end of 2010. What a disgrace.

  3. MrHumble says: Mar 16, 2010 12:10 PM

    With double speak like Havner and his agents do, it is much easier to understand the rationale that Packer fans use when discussing anything football. I wonder if Havner learned it from Packer fans or they learn it from their players?????

    3rd string tight end. Get rid of him.

    I wonder how the Green Bay Packer fans who rip the Vikings for everything will post on this one. I guess the Packer Organization will be blamed for this just like they do the Vikings lousy organization.

  9. footballrulz says: Mar 16, 2010 12:48 PM

    So what!
    A disgrace Contra? A disgrace? What a high set of standards you must carry. Oh, I bet it’s because he’s a Packer huh? Be alright if he was a Viking though now, wouldn’t it.

    A once proud organization that won titles back when dinosaurs roamed the earth has become the golden standard for “what not to be” in modern football. A team who relishes addicts,abusers and even hamper shitters. Truly pathetic….
    I heard Robert De Niro is studied from the Vikings how a “class” organization is run in the new Lombardi film. The modern Packers could offer no assistance.

    LOL.. you realize that they have been the youngest team running for a number of years.. or very close to it.
    I hope the NFL comes down hard upon him once this has been sorted out and he serves his rightful penalty.
    I wish him a quick recovery, a lesson learned and a better decision making process going forward.

  15. Emoney says: Mar 16, 2010 1:03 PM

    Why do Viking fans find it necessary to post on EVERY packer thread?
    NOTE TO YOU IDIOTS! This guy is a nobody. He caught a couple touchdown passes last year only because none of the defenders figured they’d pass the ball to him. Hence, why he has only 7 catches. Its not like Finley was arrested.
    And yes, we all drink in Wisconsin 24/7. I’m sitting at my desk right now with a 6 pack. You’re all a bunch of ignorant close-minded dipshits.
    Oh and by the way, Havner was arrested in California for this accident. I guess that must mean that everyone in California is a bunch of drunks too, right?
    You’re all a bunch of hypocrites if you say that we do nothing but drink in Wisconsin. You should all be crucified the next time you pick up a beer.
    WHAT THE HELL IS THERE TO DO IN YOUR SHITTY STATE?!?!?!? Shop at your overpriced mall? Fish? 95% of your state has NOTHING!

    There’s no room for Vikings fan comments because all the Packers fans have already chimed in on the other postings calling him a fking moron.
    What are you going to do? Agree with us??

  18. Ambrose says: Mar 16, 2010 1:14 PM

    He had an accident on a motorcycle during the off-season and out-of-state. Big deal. Try to ramp it up all you want but this is a non-story.

    Can you be any more dramatic about a motorcycle wreck and a pending/ possible DUI charge? How many guys get DUI’s every year in the league. It’s his first offense so he’ll have a four game suspension and be back in tim to score two more TD’s against the Yikes. I mean, really, it’s not like he was drunk and ran his car into another car and dragging it down the street with him, or out on a boat with a bunch of skanks partying and doing blow and whatnot, hell he didn’t even take star caps, he had a wreck, and maybe a DUI. Who cares?

I’m curious how you have time to fish and drink when you’re so busy in the training room preparing for your next circus fight. You’re a clown. Your mother made a mistake when she shit you out. She should of swallowed that bottle of pills when she found out she was pregnant with you. Believe me, this world would be such a better place without you, and especially that whore.

  34. purpleguy says: Mar 16, 2010 2:48 PM

    If memory serves correct, this guy caught a couple TD passes against the Vikes. Maybe he was still celebrating. Then again, he should be celebrating the relatively minor injuries he received in a motorcycle crash without a helmet (while drunk). Unfortunately, this ain’t a big deal for a typical twentysomething NFLer. Still, I’ll bet he won’t do it again.
    Those above trashing the Vike posters for poking a sharp stick at the issue have to recognize that the responses are the result of a couple of your own doing the same thing on Viking articles for the past couple of years. Just wait until the next article on a dumbass move by a Viking player, read the comments, and you’ll know who I’m talking about.

    Pervy I won’t trash you because you do a good enough job of looking foolish yourself! I would however appreciate your turning me on to a good Blue Gill lake in Minnesota! (Don’t need the beer, I don’t drink…yes I am from Wisconsin).
    As far as classy organizations I won’t get into historical discretions. Instead I will refer to the current Viking code of conduct and the phrases that all staff and players must memorize:
    Was I wrong to run down the meter maid?
    I didn’t know I had to use my own urine for the drug test!
    It’s not my fault, I didn’t know what was in it! (starcaps).
    Sure we lost multpile fumbles and threw stupid interceptions. But hey, we played well enough to win!
    All the hits on our QB were late and illegal.
    The officials robbed us.
    The league doesn’t want us in the superbowl (the conspiracy theory I hear so much of).
    If asked who runs the team tell them you will know if and/or when he shows up in August
    Sorry, I guess all this is based on discretions in the recent and distant Viking past.
    This question just added to the list asked of possible draft picks at the Combine: Does the fullback count as 1 or 2 men in the huddle?
    I hope Havner didn’t attend J Allens course on how to live your life. This could happen more than once. Guilty or otherwise he put himself in a bad position and I hope he learns from it.

    Contra is self employed- True. Raking leaves, shoveling driveways and mowing lawns is a pretty good cash gig for a kid.
