It’s not quite the “Love Boat” scandal, but another Minnesota Vikings player is in the news for a drunk driving charge. Wasn’t the last DUI just a couple weeks ago? Yes it was.
Today’s offender is Safety Tyrell Johnson who taken in at 3:17 a., and released without bail at 5:28 a.m. Hasn’t he seen the episode of “How I met your Mother” centered the all true concept that anything you do after 2 a.m. is never good?
According to ESPN1500 Twin Cities:
A Fourth-degree DWI in Hennepin County, Minnesota is a misdemeanor defined by no aggravating factors (alcohol-related driver’s license revocation, alcohol concentration of 0.20% or more, having a child under age 16 in the car). It is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Johnson is a big dude, so to get his BAC north of .2% takes a lot of booze.
You can officially call Johnson a bust now, as he was a mid-second round pick in 2008, but unimpressed the team during his first two seasons. He started a lot of games in ’08-’09, but failed to win a starting gig this year or last. He still a big part of the current Vikes DB rotation.
