Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson became the latest contributor to the team's string of negative off-the-field news this season.

The 30-year-old was arrested by Minneapolis police and booked into the Hennepin County jail at 3:18 a.m. Sunday for one count of trespassing and one count of disorderly conduct. Both charges are misdemeanors.

A defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings was arrested for trespassing and disorderly conduct early Sunday morning after refusing to leave a downtown Minneapolis restaurant, according to a police report.

Tom Johson, 30, was taken into custody ... at Seven Steakhouse. According to the police report, Johnson was told to leave the building repeatedly by security and officers.

He refused to leave, resisted officers at the scene and was sprayed with a department-issued chemical irritant before being forced outside the restaurant.

The police report says officers used a conducted energy device, such as a Taser, on Johnson before he was arrested.

Imagine that, an uncooperative black patron is asked to leave. The police arrive to mace him and shoot him with a Taser. I wonder if they would have done that to a disorderly Brett Favre.

No, not Brett Favre, since his fame precedes him.

I've been trying to find out what happened in this case since yesterday, and I still don't know enough to draw a conclusion one way or the other. Bottom line, it's another distraction we don't need.

This is the information reported so far. It is likely incomplete.

The club, Seven steakhouse, was closed; it was about 2 AM. Johnson asked for the valet to get his car.

While waiting inside, Johnson was asked to leave the club by a staff member. Johnson, noting that other patrons that were waiting had not been asked to leave, declined and asked why only he was being asked to leave. The reply was that he was wearing boots, which were fine when he was in the club earlier. Johnson refused to leave on that basis.

A staff member called two off duty police officers to remove Johnson from the premises. The police officers told Johnson to leave, and he refused, as he felt he was being singled out. He was still waiting for his car to be brought up by the establishment's valet.

Johnson was pepper sprayed and escorted out. The off duty officers followed Johnson outside. Johnson began taping the incident on his phone. An off duty officer asked Johnson for identification, but Johnson refused saying he was doing nothing wrong. The officer swatted the phone from Johnson's hand. When Johnson went to retrieve his phone, he was tasered and arrested.

Again? I did not bring that up in the Peterson topics. I did not even reply to that even with all of that baiting going on. I must admit, I could barely resists posting, but I really did not have the time to recite some awful facts about how black people are treated in America.

Perhaps you have convinced me, I guess it was Johnson's boot wearing attire and not being a 6'3" black man that was the reason for Johnson to be asked to leave the premises while other patrons were allowed to stay inside - even though he was non intoxicated and stated that he was waiting for the establishments own valet to bring up his car.

If you believe Favre or even Christian Ponder would have received the same treatment by the staff and off duty police officers, I guess I will have to believe that too.

Let's say he was singled out for whatever reason. Even race. He should have left the establishment and taken proper steps to protest his treatment. That could be a formal complaint to the restaurant owners, a letter to the papers, utilizing Viking management or public affairs people, retaining an attorney to bring suit, and/or initiating a Viking boycott of the restaurant. The worst thing to do is cause a disturbance and have the police involved. Even worse to wind up getting arrested. He should have taken the high road and plotted his next moves. He was probably discriminated against for race or attire, but either way, that does not excuse his actions. You have to be smarter than he was. Now he's got trouble.

As far as Tom Johnson, I think the full context of the story needs to come to light. If the club is guilty of profiling, then they should get their due. But until then, how can one label the club guilty and Johnson innocent? The same double standard that has been argued here for a couple weeks now. My opinion anyway.

Something tells me there was more to asking him to leave than his boots.. or any other appearance related.

Now don't blame me for this. People like to make judgements way to early. Look at Mike Brown. Just a gentle giant minding his own business waiting to go to college.. Opps he decides to strongarm a little man and steal some cigs, then get into an altercation with the fuzz.

Or Trayvon the wonderful black boy that was just trying to get home safe so he could eat his skittles and tea.. Opps then comes out the pics of the AGGRESSOR with his face and head punched in...

How bout the one last night on CNN with the black mom ,dad, and kids when the cops pulled them over for no seat belts and a license violation. For thirteen minutes the ask them to get out of the car.. They refuse saying the cops want to shoot them. Maybe a negotiator should have been called before they broke the glass on the window and tased the passenger who would not open the door.

Yes indeed the chick on CNN as she always does tells us about the WAR on blacks... Just blacks no one else. How bout this

OPEN THE DAMN DOOR WHEN THE COPS ASK YOU REPEATEDLY

GO HOME AND TELL YOUR DAD THEIR IS A SUSPICIOUS MAN FOLLOWING ME HOME INSTEAD OF CONFRONT HIM AN BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF HIM UNTIL HE DECIDES TO SHOOT YOU

BE AT HOME PACKING FOR YOUR FIRST DAY OF COLLEGE NOT OUT STRONG AMRING A STORE OWNER FOR CIGARS YOU USE TO MAKE YOUR BLUNTS, THEN HAVE AN ALTERCATION WITH A COP AND GET SHOT DEAD....

If it's me, it's pretty simple, I leave the premises. Maybe he was drunk, pissed off at someone, or they just mistreated him...who knows for sure? But cops have guns and tasers. Just leave, and file a complaint.

Apparently their Yelp rating has dropped a point to 3/5 over the past year, and many of the negative reviews specify bad service. Johnson should have gone to Ruth's Chris.

People, regardless of skin color, have to learn not to mess with cops. When you piss off cops, only bad things can happen. And one thing cops hate is when someone pulls out a phone/camera and starts recording.

I don't know if we'll ever get the full picture of what happened, but it's probably somewhere in the middle, with responsibility borne by either side.

Well there is something to be said for standing up for yourself when it is necessary. While I sort of agree with you the cops are supposed to show up and do their job and not let this happen. Of course, this is assuming he was singled out and nothing else happened. But, speaking of cops, follow my comment below the next quote. . .

You got that right. Cops hate accountability. How dare you try and tape them when they are about to violate your rights which they do more than ever these days. Of course there are exceptions but the new breed of cop is an asshole power tripping jerkoff who has been trained to think everyone is guilty until proven innocent. Its them against us now, no more working together as a community with common interests. I know several older, retired, cops who feel the same way about this. They can't stand the new guys either because the old guys were cool cops, guys who knew when someone needed to be arrested or maybe just given a ride home, and spared jail and court, cause he was just a good person who was one beer over the limit that night.

I don't know if I would classify it as that.

Police officers have a very difficult job, I wouldn't want it. They have to make split second decisions sometimes and are held accountable for them. You have people with an agenda that may take all the time in the world to make a decision that had to be made in a much smaller time frame.

The jury and prosecutors get to hear what happened in a calm safe environment. That is far different than the environment the police officer was in when he made his decisions.

That might be, but that doesn't give them the right to physically assert themselves over someone who is not breaking any laws.... something we see far too often.

And if an officer strikes you with enough force to knock something out of your hand, while you're not breaking any laws and he has no just cause for thinking you're breaking a law... that is absolutely assault.

Next time you see an officer, try knocking something out of his hands. See what you get charged with.

My understanding is that anyone has the right to film a police officer in action unless it restricts the police officer from doing their work (like during an investigation or questioning). Even then, I don't think they are taught to destroy the device.

Most departments around the country won't hire intelligent people as police officers. They like them to be low-browed, aggressive, and not question authority/orders. This is not just my opinion.


Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops (http://abcnews.go.com/US/court-oks-barring-high-iqs-cops/story?id=95836)

A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against Robert Jordan because the same standards were applied to everyone who took the test.

“This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class,” Jordan said today from his Waterford home. “I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.”

Oh I see , so a guy gets pulled over for DUI and while the cop is administering the field test
the drunk can have his cell out videotaping his test.? Is that what we are now in this country?
As a cop you want a cell phone in your face while you are investigating a crime? Really? Get real.

That's right sheep. Obey. Be a good little boy because the police are always right, especially these days. And cry me a river about this hard job stuff. Sure it can be dangerous, and I completely respect an honest, hardworking cop, but, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a police officer is tenth on the list of most dangerous jobs (based on fatality rates). Behind, in order, from most to less dangerous: fisherman, loggers, aircraft pilots and flight engineers, steel workers, farmers and ranchers, roofers, electric power line installers and repairers, drivers - sales workers - truck drivers, and refuse collectors. That's right, your local trash man has a more dangerous job than a police officer.

I really think it is a good thing for both sides to have a police officer taping what is going on during a stop. I guarantee the Ferguson case would be a lot easier to solve if that Police Officer had a camera. I take a person's phone with a grain of salt, they can be edited so easily.

I agree. The technology is so cheap and readily available now (GoPro cams, for example) that it should be used and used with integrity. I wish we could go back to the days when the police and the community worked together towards a common goal. These days it feels like an us vs them mentality. I see it where I live and I live in a small mountain town. I can't imagine what its like in a city.

And damn! Whether Johnson's arrest was legitimate or not I wish these types of things would stop happening to Vikings players so we wouldn't have to be discussing them. I think we'd all agree we'd all prefer to be talking football rather than the political nuances of what's been going on lately.

Do not rely on the Latest Talk or Top 10 for post location. If you wish to talk about cars or music for example, please post it in "The Clubhouse." And, of course, if you wish to talk about YOUR MINNESOTA VIKINGS, post it in the Vikings Fan forum! If an Admin or Mod find that you have posted an off topic post, it will be moved to the appropriate forum or removed.

In your case, simply replace "cars or music" with "ill-informed political opinions and hate mongering."
