Report: Vikings DB Cook charged with brandishing weapon

Minnesota Vikings defensive back Chris Cook was arrested in Lynchburg, Va. on Saturday night and charged with brandishing a handgun, according to WSET-TV.

Police said Cook, 24, pulled out the weapon during a fight with one other man on Halifax Avenue around 5:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. He was arrested a short time later.

Cook, a rookie last season, appeared in six games for the Vikings in 2010, finishing with 21 tackles during an injury-riddled campaign that saw him sidelined with multiple knee injuries. 

The Vikings drafted Cook in the second round of last April's draft out of Virginia.
