Vikings: Benny Sapp wasn't arrested
Despite earlier reports suggesting otherwise, Vikings cornerback Benny Sapp was not arrested Friday. The Vikings released a statement Friday night saying Sapp "received a citation" but wasn't arrested and fully cooperated with authorities. The Pioneer Press reports that Sapp was handcuffed after "chest bumping" a Children's Hospital security guard in a parking lot.
