Just two days after All-Everything running back Adrian Peterson was cited for going 109 mph in a 55 mph zone, wide receiver Bernard Berrian was ticketed for doing 104 mph in a 60 mph zone.
According to reports, Minnesota State Patrol nabbed Berrian on Interstate 694. The state trooper -- who didn't recognize the wideout -- characterized him as "polite" and "cooperative."
Authorities in Minnesota seem to be using the high-profile stops as a public-service announcement to other speeders -- the thought being: if members of the division-leading Vikes can get busted, so can you, Joe Blow.
"It is a little bit odd, but on the other hand, I like the publicity about it, because it sort of tells people here are the ramifications, first of all," Capt. Matt Langer of the Minnesota State Patrol said, according to WCCO-TV. "And you're going to get caught."
