You might remember, during "Monday Night Football" a couple of nights ago, broadcasters Joe Theismann, Mike Tirico and Tony Kornheiser were praising oft-troubled Vikings wide receiver Koren Robinson for his triumphant return after years of alcohol abuse. Theismann, in particular, talked about Robinson went above and beyond what was required of him to make certain he was covered in every aspect. The praise was effusive, and insistent.
And, last night, Robinson was arrested for a DUI.
St. Peter, Minn., police Sgt. Loren Jansen said Robinson was arrested at 10:46 p.m., for "driving while impaired." He is being held at Nicollet County Jail in St. Peter, Jansen said. Jansen said multiple charges are pending, and a report has not been filed yet.
The Vikings had been given the night off from camp but were expected to be back in bunks by 11 p.m. Robinson didn't quite make it. Because of his past suspensions — including four games from the Seahawks in 2004, the team that released him after a DUI in June 2005 — he could face a yearlong ban from the league. Those are some extremely costly beverages.
