This Is the Song That Doesn't End. . .

Yes it goes on and on, my friend. . .

According to Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. . .well, I'll just let you read it.

Vikings starting receiver Koren Robinson was arrested late Tuesday night on his way back to training camp in Mankato, Minn., on suspicion of drunken driving, according to a St. Peter, Minn., police official.

Sgt. Loren Jansen of the St. Peter Police Department said Robinson was arrested at 10:46 p.m., for "driving while impaired" and is being held at Nicollet County Jail in St. Peter.

Jansen said multiple charges are pending, and a report has 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 said, "and he is incarcerated at this time."

Vikings officials and Robinson's agent, Alvin Keels, could not be reached for comment early this morning.

A Mankato police official confirmed that they assisted the St. Peter police department in making the arrest. Jansen said county attorney Mike Riley would handle the formal complaint this morning.

Vikings players were expected to report back to the players' dorm at Minnesota State Mankato by 11 p.m. They had been given Tuesday off after a 16-13 exhibition loss to Oakland Monday night at the Metrodome.

Robinson, 26, is in his second season with the Vikings, and he faces a potential yearlong suspension from the NFL because of past substance abuse issues. The ninth overall pick in the 2001 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks, Robinson was released by the club in June 2005 after he was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving the previous month. He also had been suspended four games in 2004 for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

After making the Pro Bowl last season as a kickoff return, Robinson signed a three-year, deal worth $12.7 million during the offseason.

He was projected as the Vikings' top receiver, but his status is now in doubt because of this arrest.


Man. . .hasn't this just been a wonderful 24-48 hours?  Once again, no team gives us more value for our entertainment dollar than the Minnesota Vikings.  Argh.

Seriously, who in the hell do we have to kill to have things go right for this team for a change?
