Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was arrested for DWI on Saturday morning.
Felton reportedly refused a chemical test at the scene and his bond was set at $12,000 at Hannepin County Jail.
The Vikings had high hopes for Felton, projecting him as their No. 1 fullback ahead of Ryan D’Imperio and Matt Asiata. Felton signed a one-year, minimum deal with the club in March, so he’d be easy to release if the Vikings want to cut ties with an off-the-field problem.
Prior to Saturday’s arrest, Felton had no history of conduct policy violations.
