Cedric Needs Help With Drivers

Vikings up-and-coming cornerback had trouble shutting down Donald Driver on Monday night.

Back in August he had trouble finding a designated driver.

He is now facing the ramifications of being a drunk driver.

Griffin was sentenced to two days of community service on Thursday, according to WCCO.  He also had $370 in court fees.

These punishments are the least of Griffin’s concerns, however, as he was arrested for disorderly conduct back in 2007 and now faces possible punishment as multiple-offender in the NFL’s eyes.  This all hinges on what exactly Griffin pleaded guilty to. 

In regards to the NFL possibly dishing out further punishment, Griffin said, “”I’m just really helping my team win and we’re off to a 4-0 start. Everyone is feeling confident around here and we’ll continue to go with that.” 

To Griffin’s credit, it sounds like he realized his mistake and was attempting to do the right thing.  According to the Star Tribune, police found Griffin pulled over on the side of Highway 5.  He says he had pulled over on his own accord because he realized that he shouldn’t be driving in his current state.

“I’m apologetic and I’m sorry about what happened,” Griffin said. “I’m just trying to help my team win and continue to move forward from that incident.”

As Pro Football Talk points out, this happened in August when the media in Minnesota was focused on one person, and only one person…  which is why we’re finally hearing about this in October.

    Was not aware that he pulled himself over. Thats good news, especially since Dante Stallworth was sentenced in the middle of July- probably about 2-4 weeks before Ced got into his car drunk.
