Viking arrested declared a mistake--By: Hannah Mikels
Minnesota Viking cornerback Ronyell Whitaker's attorney said the player's arrest was a "total mistake," according to wcco.com.
Whitaker was arrested early Thursday downtown Minneapolis for an outstanding warrant for drunk driving and careless drving, according to wcco.com.
The warrant was a result of an incident last September in Eden Prairie when Whitaker was pulled over. He passed the field sobriety test but was issued a citation for reckless driving, according to kstp.com.
But his attorney, Joe Tamburino, said it was already taken care of, according to wcco.com.
Tamburino said he appeared in court on the player's behalf and has a receipt proving the ticket was paid, according to kstp.com.
The court apologized for the error of having Whitaker marked as a non-appearance, according to kstp.com.
