Vikings fullback arrested at McDonald’s drive-thru

Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was arrested over the weekend for driving while intoxicated. Or, more appropriately, he was arrested for idling while waiting for a late-night Big Mac.

The 25-year-old was stopped at 3 a.m. while in a drive-thru lane at a McDonald's near Minneapolis. Police were responding to a report of an intoxicated man behind the wheel.

According to Judd Zulgad of ESPN1500, Felton was booked for second-degree driving while intoxicated with an aggravating factor of refusal to take an alcohol breath test. He was booked and released on $12,000 bond.

In the annals of trouble for NFLers at fast food restaurant drive-thru lines, this will be but a mere footnote to the 2006 arrest of Detroit Lions assistant coach Joe Cullen, who was cited for sitting at a Wendy's window while naked in his car. That incident, plus a subsequent DUI arrest, earned Cullen a $20,000 suspension.

Felton signed a one-year deal with the Vikings in March and is expected to enter the 2012 season as the team's fullback.
