Koren Robinson serving time in St. Peter

As his former teammates prepare for training camp, former Vikings receiver Koren Robinson isn't too far from Mankato.

He's sitting in the Nicollet County Jail in St. Peter, just north of Mankato.

The Nicollet County Sheriff's office confirmed to my colleague Tad Vezner that Robinson was admitted into the jail on July 18, and he is set to be released on Aug. 2.

Robinson was released last year, 11 days after he was arrested following a high-speed chase that ended near the Minnesota State (Mankato) campus. Robinson was charged with a felony count of fleeing a police officer, two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree driving while impaired, and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, careless driving and driving after his North Carolina license was suspended.

In March 2006, Robinson signed a three-year contract worth $12.7 million.

The Vikings open training camp with practices Friday.
