The Minnesota Vikings are coming off an embarrassing 27-6 loss at home to the Buffalo Bills and it seems like there’s a bigger concern that the team needs to deal with.

According to KSTP-TV, Vikings star defensive end Everson Griffen was involved in an altercation at a hotel in Minneapolis, MN.

Per the report:

According to police records, a person at Hotel Ivy was verbally threatening to shoot someone in the middle of the day on Saturday.

The Minneapolis Police Department redacted that person’s name from the report, but a source confirmed that it was indeed Griffen named in the report. According to the report, at one point staff members moved to the back of the office while Griffen paced around in the lobby.

Police dispatch audio archived online includes a dispatcher saying that the suspect said to the staff that if someone wouldn’t let him in his room that he was going to shoot someone. Police said no gun was ever seen. 

At one point, the report said the caller stated that Griffen threatened to assault staff members and was laying on the lobby floor. Griffen was never arrested, according to police.

Minneapolis PD spokesperson John Elder said the man left on his own and the caller was no longer cooperative. Elder said the situation does not warrant any further investigation and the officers called to the scene never saw a gun.

In a statement, Minnesota Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said:

“We are aware of the situation involving Everson Griffen and certainly concerned by what we have heard. We are currently focused on Everson’s well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family.”

Griffin was ruled out last Friday for Sunday’s game with a knee injury. He did not attend the game and Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said after the game that Griffin was dealing with a “personal matter.”

Simply just saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the fantasti c clarity in your writing. I will certainly best away grab your rss feed to stay abreast of any kind of updates. Great work and much success in your business dealings!

  2. I impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very completely satisfied that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.

  3. The general, Qin Zhong, was a loyal veteran left by the former head of state to Qin Hengtian. It was the veteran of the Three Dynasties. Because he was too old and he did not want to stay away from his homeland, he left the auxiliary Qin Hengtian. In the conflict with the Yinzong Zong, he also desperately defended Qin Hengtian, and used the prestige of Jiuding Wangzong to force him to retreat.

  4. “Because of the poor economic performance in Europe, we are facing a slowdown in global economic growth,” Kudlow said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. But unlike the White House, at the policy meeting in March, the Fed did not conclude that the global economic slowdown meant that the bank should start cutting interest rates.

  5. Ten years later, in a great world in which the immortality of Xianting was in the big universe, in a big world that has not yet been named, there is a chaotic color of light rising up to the mighty atmosphere, a human race boy of only six or seven years old. Broken down.

  6. I must get across my appreciation for your generosity in support of persons that actually need guidance on that idea. Your special commitment to passing the solution all-around was exceptionally advantageous and have without exception helped associates much like me to achieve their pursuits. Your interesting guideline implies much a person like me and somewhat more to my office workers. Thanks a lot; from each one of us.

  7. Pornhub’s report examined the beginning of April through just before opening weekend. April 5, everything was fine and pure and good-people out there looking up their standard MILF videos and the like. But on April 18, everything changed. Search results went up by 1,779 percent in one day, followed by the peak on April 19, when searches were up by 2,912 percent.

  8. I wanted more than just a chance at motherhood; having children has always been a dream. For as long as I can remember I’ve pictured starting a family one day—just one day very far in the future. Adding to the ambiguity, I’m in a queer, same-sex relationship, and I hadn’t even begun to think about how my partner and I might go about having kids. We weren’t even certain we’d end up together. We’ve been dating for almost two years, and while it seems likely that we are heading in the direction of marriage at some point, we are definitely not ready to have kids together. We’d barely talked about moving in together or whether she’d come to the next Thanksgiving, let alone whether we’d want to conceive biologically, adopt, or foster. We were, and are, at the beginning of considering a life together—a time that should be filled with the glow of possibility, the freedom to dream without commitment.

  9. The question was hypothetical and routine for most people,Jordan but for me it felt sharp with fear. The statistics I am trying to beat ran through my mind on repeat. I couldn’t look at my partner as they walked me through my options. In the end,Jordan my frozen eggs will go to my parents,Jordan should the worst happen. I trust them to know where they should go from there,Jordan and who they should go to,Jordan if anyone. My partner and I held hands as we left the office.
