Only a few days after the “Days without an Arrest” meter drifted into double digits, it’s time to knock it back to zero.
According to the Daily Trojan, Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was arrested Monday in Los Angeles on charges of felony battery.
Griffen was pulled over at the intersection of 30th and Hoover Streets. He reportedly became aggressive when he was questioned by officers. He then fled (always a good idea), and he assaulted one of the pursuing officers (an ever better idea).
The adventure ended with a Taser gun and a felony charge.
A fourth-round pick of the Vikings in the 2010 draft, Griffen appeared in 11 games as a rookie, making 11 tackles.
