Vikings safety Jayron Kearse pleaded guilty to charges stemming from his arrest last October in Minnesota on Thursday.

Kearse was arrested in Minnesota after failing a field sobriety test and also faced charges related to having a handgun without a permit. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Kearse pleaded guilty to fourth-degree driving while intoxicated and possessing a pistol in public without a permit. Three other charges were dismissed.

Kearse has been sentenced to probation and community service. He will also be required to go through a substance abuse program, participate in a victim impact panel and hand over the firearm. The gun charge will be taken off Kearse’s record if he remains out of further legal trouble for a year.

The NFL will likely discipline Kearse at some point. He is set to become a free agent in March.

  1. Both Kearse and the Vikings had decided to move on from each other and I think that’s for the best.

  2. Do the Opposite…

    It may ultimately be for the best but it’s tough watching a guy like Kearse really start to emerge this last season only to see him leave.

  3. Some team is going to get a good player. I would like to see the Vikings resign JK but it sure doesn’t look like that is happening. He is the perfect DB that coaches like to help in the run defense.

  4. He should have been doing time for these serious crimes but as usual in minisoda the desperation in the pursuit of a Lombardi outweighs public safety!

    As opposed to GB where their predator TE was put in the team hall of fame and is a hero. Just wait til he has his killer post prom leggier.
