OT McKinnie Arrested After Brawl Outside Nightclub


Bad news for tackle Bryant McKinnie, who was arrested for aggravated battery after a street brawl outside a nightclub early on Sunday. The Vikings tackle also was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence, according to a police report. Authorities were called to Club Space after a fight broke out. McKinnie had been thrown out by a nightclub security guard and was arguing and spit on Eric Otero, according to a police report. Otero, 32, said he wouldn’t press charges if McKinnie left. Authorities said the former University of Miami player then went to a nearby strip club, but later returned to Club Space and fought with Otero again. Miami Police found McKinnie “in the middle of a large crowd, throwing punches and again yelling obscenities,” according to the police report. Police told McKinnie to stop. He refused and boarded a bus. The bus driver was ordered not to drive away. McKinnie was arrested and bonded out for $9,000 at 2:25 p.m., Miami-Dade County Corrections Department spokeswoman Janelle Hall said.

    This is terrible news for Viking fans. The Vikings really aren’t that far off from being an elite NFL team, but this is one position that we weren’t anticipating addressing this offseason. Obviously, McKinnie is innocent until proven guilty, but this doesn’t sound good at all. At the very least he will end up with a 4 game suspension. Does this mean we will take a closer look at someone like Faneca now?

    Nevermind, Faneca plays guard. Still, does this “incident” change our priorities in free agency?
