ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings receiver Koren Robinson was in jail Wednesday on suspicion of drunken driving, a newspaper reported.
Sgt. Loren Jansen of the St. Peter Police Department told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that Robinson was arrested around 10:46 p.m. Tuesday for "driving while impaired."
A dispatcher at the Nicollet County sheriff's department confirmed to The Associated Press that Robinson was still in county jail Wednesday morning but would not provide further information.
Jansen told the newspaper that multiple charges were pending, but a police report had not been filed yet.
"I won't be able to tell you a lot, other than that he was arrested for driving while impaired," Jansen told the Pioneer Press, "and he is incarcerated at this time."
The newspaper said Vikings officials and Robinson's agent, Alvin Keels, could not be reached for comment early Wednesday morning.
Robinson was arrested on his way back to the Vikings' training camp at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Players were expected to report back to their dorm by 11 p.m.
Robinson, 26, is in his second season with the Vikings. He emerged as the team's most dangerous receiver last season and made his first trip to the Pro Bowl, as a kick returner. The Vikings rewarded him with a new three-year contract in March that included $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
