Three Vikings Arrested

Just when the Vikings hoped there would be a long break in between incidents involving players, E.J. Henderson and two other Vikings found themselves in jail and facing potential felony charges.

The calm over the Vikings camp that had subsided after DWI arrests of Kenny Mixon and E.J. Henderson ended with a thud Sunday as three Vikings -- Henderson, Mike Nattiel and Steve Farmer -- along with a man identified as Nattiel's uncle were arrested for beating a man outside the Tabu nightclub in Minneapolis' warehouse district.

According to the police report, the three Vikings "kicked, punched and stomped" the 32-year old victim even after he was unconscious.

The three Vikings were released after posting $50,000 bail each. The three each face potential third-degree assault charges -- a felony in Minnesota. The players could also be subject to fines or suspensions from coach Mike Tice and/or the NFL.
