Vikings' Fred Evans stiffed cabbie following "frisky" ride, C.J. reports

Fred Evans
According to C.J.'s latest report, Vikings defensive tackle Fred Evans stiffed a cabbie who drove him and a gal pal from Augie's strip club in downtown Minneapolis to Eden Prairie because Evans couldn't wait to have some alone time with the woman.

But after the cabbie appealed to the Vikings' director of security, he finally received his fare and then some -- a total of $275, to be exact.

C.J., citing conversations Strib reporters had with the cabbie, Abdikadir Noor, reports that Evans, 30, was getting "frisky" with the woman, described as an Augie's "employee," during the ride from the city to the 'burbs on the night of December 1, hours after the Vikings defeated the Chicago Bears at the Metrodome.

Once Evans and his gal arrived at TownPlace Suites at 11588 Leona Road in Eden Prairie, Noor told C.J. the two "went to the room... and he never [came] back."

"He [hung] up the phone on me once," Noor said. "Once [Evans] told me 'one second,' and I had to wait 30 minutes."

Evans never emerged from the building to pay his fare, so Noor called police. He later identified Evans out of a photo lineup, C.J. reports, though Noor said he already knew Evans was a Vikings player based on the conversation he had with the woman during the trip.

In hopes of recouping his fare without having to wrangle with police, Noor then contacted the Vikings.

"They gave me a cellphone [number] for somebody who handles things like this, when problems happen to the players, you know," Noor told C.J.

A couple of days later, he received his fare and a generous tip.

"I'm happy now," Noor said.

We're sure Evans and the Vikings aren't as happy to see this story in the news, but that's what happens when you're a millionaire and you allegedly stiff a cabbie.

Not his first incident with a cabbie. In that incident he was charged with battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and trespassing. He was waived by the Miami Dolphins for that. He has also been caught for possession previously. The guy was a 7th round pick and is lucky to be in the league. Sure seems like a slap in the face to the league. He is disrespecting the NFL and the Vikings. I say put him on the waiver wire. The NFL should be for the best football players in the nation. It really should not be for thugs. I say let him be a thug, but not in the NFL.

It's so obvious there is no accountability or respect on this team!! Bunch of L-L-L-L-O-O-O-O-S-S-S-E-R-S (in more ways than one!)! Coach needs to grow a pair and hold his players accountable for their ridiculous behavior!

Your comments continue to have so many flaws I don't know where to begin, dusty. How about I jus call you an idiot.

That's ridiculous. Any team lead, boss, manager knows how to instill ethics into their people. Idiot

Code of ethics? They are grown men. I don't believe you can implement a truly effective way of controlling a team. People do what they do. You could argue that the patriots have a good grasp of moral excellence, but we must not forget Mr. Hernandez.

Brian it's an attitude and a code of ethics that is set by a team leader/coach and allowed or not allowed to fester.

Dustin, the off the field antics are a result of team doing so horribly. I recall a time earlier this year when there were NO off the team antics, and we still sucked.

Probably makes more money in one game as the cab driver makes in one year! What a jerk

The off the field antics is a huge reason the vikes can't get it together and the coaching staff can't control a team. Way to go Fred at least you didn't waste the money of renting a boat

Stupid jackass, the Vikings have more problems off the field than on it, and that's saying something!!

He only had enough on him to pay for one of his rides, apparently.

Special people can't be expected to be bothered with the trivialities of common, un-special people. The Special People have people for that. His boner was far more important and special than paying for his ride. The way the Vikings roll, he most likely ended up paying for both his rides that night.

It's amazing how City Pages is always a day behind. Seems strange considering all the CP does these days is link to the star tribune story. Every day I come into work to see a new story on CP that I read...you guessed it....Yesterday.

It happens all the time? Really, people routinely skip out on taxi fare because they are just too damn horny to whip out their...wallets and pay before they leave?

@buckypizza Calling them the Queens makes absolutely no sense, in any way.

So then don't come here, go to the Star Tribune's website instead. Enjoy that pay wall.
