Biggs: Vikings CB Griffin pleads guilty to drunken driving
Minnesota Vikings cornerback Cedric Griffin pleased guilty to drunken driving on Wednesday in a Hennepin County (Minn.) courthouse. Griffin paid a $300 fine and was ordered to perform two days of community service, according to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Griffin was arrested on Aug. 30 after he reportedly had pulled his vehicle off to the side of the road after determining it was unsafe for him to continue driving. Police spotted his vehicle and him inside and it and concurred, arresting him.
This isn’t his first encounter with the wheels of justice in Hennepin County. Griffin was arrested for disorderly conduct in April 2007 outside Spin Nightclub in Minneapolis he was reportedly “physically fighting” with security members who took issue with his “saggy pants.” Under terms of his court appearance, the case was to be dismissed if he had no brushes with law enforcement in the next year.
It appears Griffin pulled that off, but combining saggy pants with swerving along the road (or parking along the side of it as the case may be) might be more than enough to capture the attention of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
