Vikings ordered Griffen undergo mental evaluation

Vikings fear for star who allegedly threatened hotel shooting

Everson Griffen missed Vikings game after Hotel Ivy incident, alleged gun threats

Last week, the Minnesota Vikings were concerned enough about Everson Griffen's state of mind that they barred the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end from practice until he had a mental health evaluation.

The primary concern for Griffen is what happened over the weekend, as officers of the Minneapolis Police Department were called to Hotel Ivy on Saturday because, per a police report obtained by ESPN's Courtney Cronin, "an individual was threatening to shoot someone if he wasn't allowed in his room". Authorities later heard from Vikings officials that he'd been ordered away from the team pending a mental health evaluation.

Griffen, 30, was arrested twice after his rookie season, the first incident coming January 28, 2011, when he was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of public intoxication.

"The only thing we're really concerned about for Everson isn't anything to do with football", Zimmer said Tuesday. "I just hope the best for him".

A league source told ESPN that Griffen is being evaluated after a Saturday incident in which police had to be called to the hotel where Griffen has been staying.

He was not at U.S. Bank Stadium for the game and will not travel to Los Angeles with the team tonight in preparation for Thursday's game against the Rams.

Griffen's wife notified police that the 30-year-old needs medication for his mental struggles and had not slept in days.

We wish nothing but the best for Griffen, who has been an absolute fan favorite in his time with the Vikings. He told police that "Everson was acting insane and he was unsafe", according to a report filed Saturday by Minnetrista police officer Justin Thompson.

During the game, defensive end Everson Griffen was nowhere to be seen. The reporting officer placed a health and welfare hold on Griffen "based upon his actions and information I had acquired about him". There was no arrest made in the incident. Griffen's wife later contacted police to inform them Griffen said he was at Vikings teammate Trae Waynes' home and was trying to break in. He was not wearing a shirt when he did this, left then drove to a gas station in excelsior where he got out, spotted someone he thought he knew and got in their vehicle leaving his vehicle behind. "He's always been a really, really good model for us and obviously he's going through some tough times now". He signed a $58 million, four-year contract extension in 2017 and had a career-high 13 sacks that season. The driver later told police he "didn't feel safe at all and needed to get out of there", according to the report.
