It is being reported that Minnesota Viking Everson Griffen was involved in an incident at a Minneapolis Hotel Saturday.
According to police records, a person at Hotel Ivy was verbally threatening to shoot someone in the middle of the day on Saturday.
The Minneapolis Police Department redacted that person’s name from the report, but a source confirmed that it was indeed Griffen named in the report.
According to the report, at one point staff members moved to the back of the office while Griffen paced around in the lobby.
Police dispatch audio archived online includes a dispatcher saying that the suspect said to the staff that if someone wouldn’t let him in his room that he was going to shoot someone. Police said no gun was ever seen.
Yikes. The rumors were swirling throughout the weekend but I don’t think anyone saw this coming. Rick Spielman has already issued a statement about it.
Rick Spielman statement: "We are aware of the situation involving Everson Griffen and certainly concerned by what we have heard. We are currently focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family."

Amazingly, Griffen left on his own and there was no arrest made. Weird story all around. It’s way too early to tell but hopefully Griffen is ok mentally.
