Griffin arrested Sunday morning for disorderly conduct

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Cedric Griffin
was freed on $50 bail after being arrested early Sunday in downtown
Minneapolis and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct,
authorities said.

Griffin, 24, was released from the Hennepin County jail at 4:45
a.m.

Two witnesses told KSTP-TV that the Vikings cornerback was
thrown out of the Spin nightclub for not pulling up his pants. The
club has a dress code requiring that pants not sag below the waist.

The witnesses said Griffin then had a dustup with bouncers and
police before being taken away in handcuffs.

A court appearance for Griffin is scheduled Friday.

A Vikings team spokesman declined comment.
