Jerome Simpson won’t be spending any time in jail after reaching a plea agreement for an arrest in November.
According to Chris Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Simpson plead guilty to careless driving and third-degree DWI (refusing to submit to a DWI test). A misdemeanor charge of driving while impaired was dropped.
Simpson was sentenced to 120 hours of community service in public schools and must attend alcohol seminars. He’s also on probation for one year. The sentence for the third-degree DWI was stayed.
Simpson was arrested on Nov. 9 after officers were called to respond to a stalled vehicle. Simpson failed a field sobriety test at the scene.
Simpson was suspended by the league for three games after being sentenced to three years probation on a felony drug charge in Kentucky. Another incident with the legal system could bring further league punishment for Simpson as well. As an unrestricted free agent, it could make it a challenge for Simpson to find a job this offseason.
Simpson caught 48 passes for 726 yards and one touchdowns for the Vikings this season.
