Vikings WR Cayleb Jones Arrested on Allegations of Felony Theft, Domestic Assault

Vikings wide receiver Cayleb Jones was arrested Tuesday on allegations of felony theft, misdemeanor domestic assault and for interfering with a 911 call. He was being held without bond in the Dakota County Jail in Hastings, Minnesota.

A preliminary investigation deemed that Jones and an unidentified female engaged in “a verbal altercation” that turned physical. Jones fled the scene, but turned himself in.

According to arrest records, Jones was taken into custody at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday by Eagan police and booked at 5:05 p.m. He is due to appear in court at noon Thursday when he will be formally charged.

“We are aware of the situation involving Cayleb Jones and are in the process of gathering more information,” Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said in a statement released by the team. “Further comment will be provided at the appropriate time.”

Jones, a practice squad member in 2017, was already due to serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

KSTP was the first to report news of Jones’ arrest. The Vikings travel to Tennessee on Thursday for their preseason finale against the Titans.
