Ex-Vikes DE Scott arrested on suspicion of assault of child
Police say Scott was booked into the Hennepin County jail Wednesday on suspicion of assault and malicious punishment of a child.
The 26-year-old Scott is a free agent after spending the past four seasons with the Vikings. Last season, he was placed on injured reserve after four games with a broken foot.
Scott's agent, Tim DiPiero, said he was trying to find out details about the arrest.
