NFL star Chris Cook was arrested on charges regarding domestic assault charges. Cook, aged 24, was arrested without incident and called to report hearing people across the street yelling and screaming, Eden Prairie police spokeswoman Katie Beal said.
The second-year pro was booked on two charges including one count of domestic assault, and was being held without bail at Hennepin County jail. Prosecutors have 48 hours in which to charge Cook, who has a court hearing scheduled for Monday morning.
Bob Hagan, the Vikings’ spokesman, said Cook has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Green Bay undefeated. Previously, the team has an explanation, it does not intend to comment on the arrest until they produce more of what might learn.
Cook was booked into the Hennepin County jail and is on trial on Monday. After Beal, it may be held from 36 to 48 hours. The identity of the alleged victim was not released.
Cook, in his second year with the Vikings, was to begin in a heated rivalry game against the undefeated Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but was removed from the squad.
