Trouble finds another Viking following team practices this week.

The Minnesota Vikings just wrapped up a positive week of team OTA workouts, but now the team is dealing with another off-field problem. Recently signed running back, Jerome Felton was arrested late Friday night for suspicion of driving while impaired.

Felton, 25, was arrested shortly before midnight Friday. He is accused of second-degree DWI and refusing to submit to a chemical test, a gross misdemeanor. Bail is set at $12,000.

Felton is fighting for his NFL life after short stops in Carolina and Indianapolis in 2011, Detroit released him in August. In March, the Vikings took a flyer on Felton with a one-year $700,000 contract. This situation certainly won't help Felton's efforts to lock up a roster spot with the Vikings.

Quarterback Rhett Bomar and safety Tyrell Johnson were both arrested less than a year ago, and neither player is with the team any longer.
