Vikings’ Felton apologizes for DUI arrest
Fullback stopped last week
MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton is apologizing for being arrested for DUI last weekend.
Felton apologized on Wednesday at an optional practice, four days
after Eden Prairie police arrested him on suspicion of driving while
impaired and refusing to take a chemical test.
Felton was contrite on Wednesday, saying he regretted bringing some
negative attention to his new team. He was signed in the offseason to
compete for the starting fullback job.
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he was “extremely disappointed”
when notified of Felton’s arrest. Frazier met with Felton to discuss the
incident this week, and the fullback was on the field for the entire
optional practice on Wednesday.
Frazier said he has been stressing the importance of being
responsible in the community with the entire team.
