Benny Sapp cited for assault at Minneapolis Children's Hospital

What a season it has been for the Minnesota Vikings.

With one cornerback, Chris Cook , already on the sideline following an arrest for allegations of domestic violence, another cornerback has been cited by authorities.

On Friday, veteran Benny Sapp was cited for misdemeanor assault with security officers at, get this, Children’s Memorial Hospital in Minneapolis.

According to Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Sapp was in the process of dropping off his wife and 11-year-old son and he had two incidents with security. Sapp was handcuffed while police interviewed him and security guards. He has been charged with fifth-degree assault and careless driving for attempting to drive while a security guard stood in front of his vehicle.

Sapp allegedly chest bumped an officer and then attempted to drive past the officer. It should be noted that Sapp was not arrested. He has 10 days to schedule a court appearance.

Sapp was signed in mid-November as injuries and the loss of Cook has thinned out the Minnesota secondary.
