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.
