We had a long run without any NFL players being arrested at the end of last year, but it concluded shortly after the end of the Vikings’ season.
That’s when cornerback Jabari Price was arrested on a suspicion of DWI charge in Minnesota on December 29. Price resolved the case in court this week by pleading guilty to a lesser charge.
Price’s lawyer told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Price pleaded guilty to careless driving and agreed to 30 days of electronic home monitoring that will allow him to go to work with the Vikings while serving out the sentence. Price has also enrolled in a substance abuse education program and paid a $300 fine to settle the case.
Price, who played mostly on special teams in 14 games as a rookie, will avoid jail as long as he abides by the terms of his plea deal, but could still be disciplined by the league under the personal conduct policy.
