THE BACKSTORY: Vikings' Erin Henderson suing state over 3 a.m. DWI arrest

The news was just broken by USA Today NFL reporter and former 1500 ESPN Vikings beat writer Tom Pelissero.

(Later reports indicate Henderson was actually arrested around 3:30 a.m.) :::: UPDATE ::::

TMZ reports that Henderon's most recent arrest came after a one-car accident.

From TMZ:
We're told Henderson spun out and crashed off the road. Only his car was involved. When police showed up, we're told officers suspected he was under the influence and administered a field sobriety test, which he bombed.

According to the booking report, Henderson was placed under arrest and booked on 4 charges, including DWI and DWI test refusal. He's still in custody and is expected to bail out today. He was NOT injured in the crash.
Henderson reportedly posted bail and was released from custody earlier today.

:::: UPDATE II ::::

Henderson was also arrested for pot and paraphernalia possession, Chip Scoggins reports: -- Follow Aaron Rupar on Twitter at @atrupar. Got a tip? Drop him a line at arupar@citypages.com.

I wanted to him put on the waiver wire after his last arrest. We don't need stupid people like this on the Vikings. He is disrespecting the league, the Vikings, his fellow players. The NFL is for the best football players in the nation and not losers like this. He did not even get drafted and got looked at because he was EJ's Brother. He was extremely lucky to be in the league and should not have been taking chances. He has also been previously suspended by the league for 4 games for violating the substance abuse policy. If you look up dumb shit in the dictionary, you will probably see his picture. Time to bid this guy farewell in the NFL forever.

Erin's repeated choice to drink and drive deserves the criticism that choice is earning him. He'll certainly be mandated to enter treatment and likely will do some time and certainly will pay a big fine if found guilty of felony DWI. Hopefully, this will stir a complete turn-around when it comes to his use of alcohol. Still, these poor choices don't make every bit of Erin a bad man. He likely has many, many fine personal qualities outside of his abuse of alcohol. Get straight, Erin. I hope you make it back to your best self soon.

It's not about race, it's about some dipshit with a habit of driving drunk. Public shaming is in order.
