MINNEAPOLIS Ã³ Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a traffic control agent with his car.
The agent tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer a half-block along the street, stopping when she fell to the ground, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.
Barrington said the agent, a city employee but not a police officer, was not seriously hurt.
Moss was in jail on suspicion of assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony. Barrington said the county attorney would consider charges Wednesday, and it was unclear whether Moss would be allowed to post bail Tuesday night.
Ã¬HeÃs going to be treated like anybody else,Ã® Barrington said.Vikings coach Mike Tice said he couldnÃt comment until he knew more.
Ã¬IÃm still trying to figure out whatÃs going on,Ã® Tice said.Moss has been in trouble before on and off the field since he was drafted in 1998. He squirted a referee with a water bottle in 1999, and abused corporate sponsors on the team bus in 2001.
The Vikings are off to an 0-3 start, their worst since 1967, and Moss caught just four passes for 16 yards in SundayÃs loss to Carolina.
The 25-year-old Moss is in his fifth year with the Vikings and is the teamÃs highest-paid player. He signed an eight-year, $75 million contract last year.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
