Everson Griffen goes to jail, "Don't tase me bro!"

If you are wondering who Everson Griffen is, so were we. Griffen is a defensive end for the Minnesota Vikings and he had a bit of a legal issue near the University of Southern California campus yesterday. That would be on top of the "other" legal issue he apparently had on Saturday.

We should, I guess, explain. According to reports in a couple of newspapers. Mr. Griffen was apparently first arrested Saturday night in Hollywoood for being drunk. Monday's incident involved attacking a police officer and being tased.

The USC Daily-Trojan talks about Monday's arrest too RIGHT HERE

The former USC Grad and 2010 3rd round draft pick for the Vikings may have some explaining to do. The Vikings, for their part, have said they want to investigate what's going on.

This is not a good start to the offseason for, well, either party. The Vikings are coming off a disastrous 2010 season where everything that could go wrong, did. As for young Mr. Griffen, you don't want to be the 1st guy in the offseason arrest derby, especially if are not someone your team is counting on to be a major contributor. Good luck to you sir in your future endeavors.

Here's some video of the NFL Network discussing Griffen when he was drafted last year.
