Report: McKinnie arrested

The Miami Herald is reporting that Vikings offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie was arrested early Sunday morning after being involved in a large street brawl outside a Miami nightclub.

According to the report, McKinnie, 28, was thrown out of Club Space by a security guard after getting into an altercation with a bouncer.

McKinnie left the club but returned and began fighting with the man, at which point he was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

Aggravated battery is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison, and may carry a mandatory minimum sentence.

He was eventually released on bond.

A Vikings spokesman released the following statement: "We are aware of the situation with Bryant McKinnie. We will respond further once we have collected the appropriate information."
