Bernard Berrian pays $300 for speeding

Last year, a mini-rash emerged of Minnesota Vikings players driving their cars too fast.  Receiver Bernard Berrian was one of them, driving his Audi 104 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Berrian pleaded guilty to speeding last week.  He now has a “petty misdemeanor” on his record, and $300 fewer dollars in his pocket.

Only days before Berrian was busted for driving too fast, running back Adrian Peterson received a ticket for driving his own car 109 miles per hour.

The good news, of course, is that the steering wheel didn’t slip out of Peterson’s hands.

  1. So is being caught and convicted of breaking a law worse than simple, unproven, and false allegations? I expect a GREATER THAN 6 game suspension.

  2. Thats funny. Poor Bernard….hes out a whole $300 and his insurance rates may go up. Next story.

  3. The only way you’d get jail time here in Florida is if you were drunk and ran over someone. But even then you would only get 24 days. Just ask Mr. Stallworth.

  4. here in Wy, and next door in Id, you go directly to jail for 24 hours for any speeding offense where your speed is over 100 MPH, then you go see the judge.

  5. So Steelers fan(s) (Steel Dahn Sahth) have resorted to denial about their quarterback being a complete jack ass, and need to rip on other players that actually 1) ‘fess up to what they did and 2) pay the consequences. Nice.

  6. Hey Steely Dahn, are you one of those Steeler fans that was also calling for a huge suspension for Jared Allen because he yelled at a guy in the bar?
    As soon as you realize that your pervert QB is a creep, the sooner the healing process will begin.

    Yeah I’m sure Bernard got his underage Audi really drunk forced it into the bathroom and drove it as fast as he could. The Audi said no a few times but….

  8. if i ever see you at the dome, i’m going to huck a whiskey bottle at you. or a pretzel. whichever is the theme of the day. god help you if it is mini bat day, for some reason.

  9. Wouldn’t want to make it sound as though Wilf’s regard to player conduct is working..
    While other teams produce arrests and serious charges (like, you know, sexual abuse?), it’s important to write a story that a Minnesota Viking got a speeding ticket LAST YEAR.
    Yep. He didn’t get another one, this is a story about the same one. He got a ticket last year, and it’s a story now, because the slow ass court system finally got around to fining him.
    Whoop di do.

    Its a speeding ticket. He didnt get an under age girl drunk and rape her in the bathroom. Come on! Grow up. big benn will be to fat to play football in a few years anyway! lol

  11. A lil’ morning Sammy Hagar:
    ♪ Gonna write me up a 125
    ♪ Post my face wanted dead or alive
    ♪ Take my license, all that jive
    ♪ I can’t drive…….55!!!!!!!

  12. Steel Dahn Sahth, get real. All it took was the commish looking at the details to be disgusted. We know he was in the bathroom with her. We know security was posted outside and kept her friends from checking on her. We know a cop was fired for not making a crime scene and allowing janitors to clean the possible crime scene. We know a hospital checked the girl out and found vaginal bleeding and bruising.
    Keep pretending he was in there twiddling his thumbs with a girl who could hardly stand. I bet you’re thanking god that the cop that he was buddy buddy with didn’t do his job.

    You’re right, Ben didn’t break the law; however the D.A. did say that just because charges weren’t being filed didn’t mean he didn’t committ a crime. He wasn’t charged because the girl didn’t want charges pressed (after a few weeks) and she couldn’t come up with a story that was consistent with the rest of her stories. Ben committed a crime, but it is a shame that people hate on the guy. It gets pretty tiring reading all the crap about Ben and it really got annoying when people would hate on my Bengals when they had their spree of arrests. I guess it comes with the territory though.

  14. steel dahn sahth
    do you have an OJ Simpson poster up in your wall too? not guilty, right?

  15. Ben’s girl had a fake ID and told police he didn’t rape her, until she changed her story.
    So, I’d give him 7 games. A crime has been committed here. Sure it’sonly speeding, but it’s much more than a false allegation.
    I have an idea, let’s allege that Romo is plotting to detonate a nuclear bomb. That’s worse than a speeding ticket, right? That’s worse than a rape allegation, right?
    Nuclear Holocaust allegation > rape allegation?
    What do you think, 20 game suspension fair?

  16. The way i see it is you can speed all you want as long as you don’t run into me, but you need to know how to handle the car you are driving, you aren’t driving a clunker that will fall apart and handles like a boat, and you have the money to pay. I see it as helping our economy and reducing traffic…

  17. do we really need to know about speeding tickets now?
    HOW about the next time he takes a pee?
    Let us know.

  18. Steel Dahn- You D Bag
    I thought I lost all the respect I could for for the Steelers but you were able to take it one step lower. You just compared speeding to rape.

  19. To Steel Dahn Sahth:
    You’re an idiot. This wasn’t the first time Ben was involved in some form of sexual abuse. It’s about CONDUCT, not necessarily criminal behavior alone. His CONDUCT of going to bars, providing drinks, taking advantage, and having his “bodyguards” preventing friends from checking on their friend is that of a predator. His CONDUCT was a black eye on all the NFL, in all the circumstances that he’s been involved. You and I would have never known about the Bernard Berrian incident because, while driving 46 miles over the speed limit isn’t smart, and is dangerous, it’s not CONDUCT unbecoming to the NFL in general.
    So why don’t you remove your lips from Big Ben’s stick and start opening your eyes.

  20. He now has a “petty misdemeanor” on his record, and $300 fewer dollars in his pocket.
    You don’t need a $ and dollars in the same sentence Florio. It’s like saying “he had 300 dollars fewer dollars…”

    =============================
    Too bad this “girl” wasn’t your mom/sister/ daughter.
    I bet you’d be singing a completely different tune then.
    Well, maybe not, your football” hero” is probably more important to you than if he did anything wrong to your family.
    Pathetic.

  22. Steel Dahn Sahth, the girl and her friends found the first cop they saw and told him she was raped. Where do you get your facts, your subconscious?

  23. Come on now, this is just the Vikings acting like Vikings and pretty far down the scale when compared to other offenses (flying hookers over state lines, public sex in front of boat employees, whizanator, scalping Superbowl tickets, wrapping your kid’s head in plastic wrap, running over meter maids, high speed chases to get back to training camp at 2 in the morning, tapping your feet in the airport bathroom, wait, that was a US senator, not a Viking but it was a Viking fan answering the call)
    If speeding were his worst offense, I am sure the Vikings could live with it. Its the impersonating a NFL receiver that makes Berrian a repeat offender

    Idiot troll.

  25. Some of you in Hawaii may be unaware of the hazards involved and how it endangers the public.
    Minneapolis and Moscow Russia have the same average high temperature in January (12 degrees Fahrenheit).
    This was over 100 mph on the winter public roads of Minnesota last December.
    It wasn’t as if he was just driving on the lake where he wouldn’t run into many people.
    THIS IS A VERY BIG DEAL ENDANGERING THE PUBLIC!!
    As for Roethlisberger comparisons, Berrian endagered anyone on the roadway, Roethlisberger is a danger to a limited segment of the population.

  26. The good news, of course, is that the steering wheel didn’t slip out of Peterson’s hands.
    Kind if witty, but my opinion is biased….. But i will still give it a 7 just for my hate on the Queens alone…

  27. Hey Bob Nelson, we have told you many times it was November and the temps were in the 40s. The roads were not in winter condition. Do you even listen? No, because you’re an idiot. Go back to your next favorite hobby, inbreeding.
