Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Oli Udoh was reportedly arrested on Saturday in Miami, Florida and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
After reportedly following a woman into a nightclub bathroom and refusing to leave, Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Oli Udoh was arrested on Saturday in Miami, Florida, and he was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to Fox Sports 640’s Andy Slater.
In the middle of his fourth season with the Vikings, it’s now possible that Udoh could face some sort of discipline from the team or the NFL.
The 25-year-old offensive lineman is the first Minnesota player to get arrested since Kevin O’Connell became the team’s new head coach back in February.
Oli Udoh now among a group of more than 50 current and former Minnesota Vikings players to get arrested since 2000
According to NFLArrest.com, no team in the NFL has had more players get arrested since 2000 than the Vikings.
With Udoh’s reported arrest on Saturday, Minnesota has now had 56 players get arrested since 2000, two more than the Denver Broncos, who have had 54 players arrested during this time period.
Before the veteran offensive lineman was arrested on Saturday in Miami, the late Jeff Gladney was the most recent current or former Vikings player to be arrested when he was charged with domestic violence in April of 2021.
We will have to see how Minnesota handles Udoh’s arrest, as this is the first incident of a player getting into legal trouble since the new regime took over earlier this year.
Will player arrests become more frequent for the Vikings under O’Connell, or will this weekend’s disappointing news end up being something that is a rare occurrence during the head coach’s tenure with the franchise?
