Former Virginia star cornerback Chris Cook became the tenth NFL player arrested during the pro football labor dispute. The now Minnesota Viking was arrested on suspicion of brandishing a gun during a fight with another man on March 12.
Cook, 24, was held in his home town of Lynchburg, Va., 179 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., shortly after the incident at approximately 5:30 pm local time according to police.
The Vikings selected the former University of Virginia star with the 34th pick in the 2010 draft.
Cook played just six games during a rookie season that was plagued with knee injuries. His season ended in December when the Vikings placed him on injured reserve.
Cook claims it was all a “misunderstanding” since nothing promotes better “understanding” than waving your gun around.
