Report: Vikings deny Everson Griffen was arrested
He didn't try to break into a teammate's home.
He was taken to the hospital, and remains hospitalized as of this morning, stemming from a state of confusion involving the incident at the hotel. Apparantly, he was at the wrong hotel Saturday night, thinking it was the team's hotel. A gun was involved, and he was threatening people.
Hopefully, everything is ok for the guy. Mental health issues are no joke.
Time to spend some quality time laying on a doctors couch.
Where is a shrink when you need one?
Everson Griffen jumped out of ambulance, feared for life
Sounds like something had been going on for weeks, as the Vikings had told him to stay away from team facilities last Thursday, until he underwent a psych eval...
too much time spent in hyperbaric chambers
Might explain some of the lack of focus the Vikings exhibited on Sunday.
I had those thoughts, but no one would accept that as a valid excuse, nor would the team try and use it.
Just sad, all around. Can only hope for his well being.
"This past week's events have raised many questions and I want to apologize to everyone who was impacted," he posted. "I am currently focused on resolving personal issues which I have been dealing for a long time. Once I have had time to address those issues, I hope to share my story with everyone.
"I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from my family, the Vikings organization, my teammates and our tremendous fan base.
"I apologize for not being able to take the field with my teammates and do not have an exact timeline for my return. I promise, however, I will return as a much-improved person and player."
