Vikings defensive back Chris Cook, who was arrested Saturday and accused of brandishing a handgun, isn’t going the “no comment” route.
Instead, Cook has given multiple interviews to get his side of the story out, and saying that he did nothing more than yell back when a neighbor in Virginia started yelling at him.
“He lives two houses down from me, we got into an argument, but nobody did anything,” Cook told Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press. “I told him I wasn’t going to fight him. He was just trying to provoke me. There was no gun involved at all.”
Cook is accusing his neighbor of lying to police about what happened.
“I wasn’t in any fight or nothing,” Cook told Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune. “It was just an argument.”
Cook said his concealed weapons license gives him “the right to carry my gun anywhere I want to,” but he denied that he pulled his gun during the argument.
