Police cite Vikings' Berrian for driving 104 mph in 60-mph zone

OAKDALE, Minn. -- Minnesota authorities say Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian has been cited for driving 104 mph in a 60-mph zone, days after police clocked teammate Adrian Peterson going 109 mph in a 55-mph area.

The Minnesota State Patrol said Friday that Berrian was cited for speeding on I-694 in Oakdale about 9:40 p.m. Monday.

A man who answered the cell phone of Berrian's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Rosenhaus wasn't immediately available to comment.

The traffic stop came one night after the Vikings beat the Chicago Bears 36-10. Berrian caught six passes for 74 yards in that game.

Peterson could lose his license after he was caught speeding Nov. 28. The running back told the AP that he believed his speed was closer to 85 mph.
