Vikings safety Jayron Kearse landed in jail on Sunday morning.
Kearse was arrested in Hennepin County, Minnesota early on Sunday. He faces charges of driving while impaired and possession of a firearm without a permit.
According to multiple reports, the police report states Kearse was spotted pulling his car onto a closed section of a highway around 3:40 a.m. Sunday morning. Kearse was pulled over and police officers suspected he was drunk. Kears was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.10 and a loaded firearm was found in his car.
“We are aware of Jayron’s arrest and are gathering additional information at this time,” the Vikings said in a statement.
Kearse is in his fourth season with the Vikings. The Vikings beat Washington 19-9 on Thursday night, so they do not have a game this Sunday.
